A swathe of purple crocuses will appear in Chelmsford's Central Park next spring. The bulbs were donated by the Chelmsford Rivermead Rotary Club in recognition of World Polio Day and were planted by the Mayor of Chelmsford, Cllr Jude Deakin, and representatives from the Rotary Club.
Help was given by the Council's parks team, who prepared the flowerbed. The arc-shaped planting area is near the park's tennis courts, just before you reach the railway viaducts when walking towards Admirals Park from the lake.
