The Crocus planting season fits in well with the Rotary Purple4Polio campaign as Crocus Corms planted around World Polio Day on the 24th October are expected to provide a blaze of purple visible around Rotary Day on the 23rd February.
For 2019, the final deadline for Crocus Corm orders is the 31st July.
Please see our Downloads section for order Forms and other related articles to help with the Purple4Polio campaign - including details of how to plant your Crocus Corms to display a Rotary symbol when they flower.
The status of known orders is shown in the table below. Please do get in contact if you have placed an order and it is not listed.

|Total For District|
We have started the cycle for the 2019-20 District Grant. We cannot make any commitments on timing at the moment as we need to have applications / proposals for projects to cover 80% of the total before we can apply for the 'block grant' from the Rotary Foundation on behalf of the District.
The simplest form of project here is where something is purchased to meet a community need (either locally or internationally). The cost breakdown or estimates can be used to support the proposal and ultimately the application for the project and the invoice or receipts can be used to support the final report. The Club needs to put in at least 50% of the total costs, with the grant providing the rest.
To try to spread the opportunity for funding, we are currently working with a limit of £1,000 per Club per project. This does support Clubs working together for increased funding support - as each Club can access a further £1,000 from the District Grant for each project (as long as they at least match that with their own contribution).
There are some standard restrictions, so it is best to review the Foundation Terms & Conditions before submitting the proposal.
The proposal form can be found via the Downloads menu in the Forms category - or via this direct link. Once completed, the form can be emailed to Brian Phillips, our District Foundation Grants Officer, via the email address on the form, or via our Contact Us page.
If your Club hasn't done so already, please complete a Memo of Understanding and send it in to Brian.
Don’t forget polio – the polio viruses have not forgotten us.
Rotary International is committed to continue the eradication of polio campaign until the WHO declares polio is eradicated. By this it means the interruption of the transmission of polio viruses for at least three years, in the presence of certified surveillance and when all polio virus stocks have been contained.
