36 people enjoyed a trip to Dorset staying overnight at a hotel in Bournemouth.
On our way south we called into RHS Wisley where we enjoyed a few hours wandering around these interesting gardens.
On day two we had some free time in Weymouth before visiting the sub tropical gardens at Abbotsbury.
Before travelling home on day three we spent the morning at Compton Acres gardens close to Bournemouth with a lunch time stop at Poole harbour before travelling home to Ailsworth .

The purple crocus is the symbol of Rotary International's 20 year campaign
to end Polio in the world. This has been a joint exercise with the World
Health Organisation and UNICEF. In the last 12 months there have only been a
handful of cases report worldwide in Afghanistan, Pakistan and Nigeria. The
rest of the world is now Polio free.

The 10.000 bulbs that we planted were purchased through Rotary with the
purchase price going straight to the Rotary Polio Campaign. The cost was met
by CASPRA and the bulbs were planted by a total of 23 volunteers made up of
vilaage gardeners and Rotarians, so it was a true community effort.

The close planting in the four locations chosen in the villages should
produce a real splashes of colour around late winter/early spring and be an
ongoing reminder of the 'END POLIO' campaign.

Many thanks to all that took part in this extremely worthy project and we
hope to be able to announce that Polio has been eradicated from the world in
the very near future.

If you would like further information please go to the Rotary International
website and enter END POLIO.

A move of venue to the church certainly did not detract from a fabulous show with many entries.
