Mendip Rotary support End Polio Now

The crocus bulbs planted by the Club in Cheddar are now in bloom for all to see. They were planted to remember the aim of Rotary International, to eradicate polio worldwide. Club involvement goes back to the very beginning when Rotarian John Lane was the Rotary International Great Britain and Ireland Treasurer for Polio Plus which was the initial name for the scheme. Polio has been reduced by 99.9% and in 2018 was only found in two countries, Afghanistan and Pakistan. There were only 31 recorded cases.
