A number of green sites in Downham have been turned purple to raise awareness of a worldwide campaign.

Members of Downham Rotary Club were joined by pupils and staff from the town’s schools last year when they planted 15,000 crocus bulbs for Rotary’s Purple4Polio campaign to eradicate polio across the world.
