A flower display of 3,000 crocuses to mark the 100th anniversary of the Vale of Belvoir Lions Club is finally blooming.

The Lions planted the crocuses on the Jubilee Green in October with the help of friends and helpers and with the support of Bottesford Parish Council.

The display is based loosely on the Lions’ badge with a reference to the 100 years of its history.

After all the hard work put in by the Lions, club president Clive Yates presided over the installation of a commemorative plaque whilst at the same time checking on the progress of the bulbs.

Phil Salathiel, of the Lions Club, said: “Things are growing well and judging by the early signs of green shoots and in the thought that spring is on its way we are happy to report that the anticipated and much hoped for display has finally arrived.”
