Last weekend saw the final planting of thousands of daffodil and crocus bulbs by volunteers of the Grantham Sunrise Rotary Club.

Two teams of Sunrisers planted the final batch of bulbs on the grassed area outside the Eden House Hotel, North Parade, Grantham, and on all the grassed areas around the roundabout at the top of Barrowby Road.

Despite the torrential rain on the day, the volunteers worked hard from 9am onwards, making sure that Grantham looks wonderful next Spring once all of the bulbs have blossomed into a sea of colour.

The bulbs have also been planted on the banks of the River Witham and in Wyndham Park, and signify the Rotary club’s involvement with the eradication of polio throughout the world.

Club president Andre Finney said: “This has been a very successful project, and the people of Grantham have been very supportive. There will be a wonderful cascade of colours from these flowers next Spring, and they will evidence all that the Rotary Club is doing internationally, and in the local community.”
