Crocuses in Bloom around Banstead!
All the hard work in October, November and January was worth it - the
Banstead Village area turns purple!
Banstead Rotary , The Beacon School and Banstead Village In Bloom and
friends and family planted crocus corms across the Banstead area in October
and November over the last few years . Now we have great displays of purple
for all to see and for all to be reminded of the fight to End Polio. See the
Lovely displays of flowers on the Banstead Library lawn and the verge by the
entrance to The Horseshoe.
Let's hope that the mass of purple on the Orchard doesn't turn too many
heads! Blooms are also visible now at the War Memorial verge as well as the
Tattenham Corner Green.
Banstead surely must qualify for the title of 'most purple area in the
Borough' as 4000 corms were planted last winter to add to those already
planted in previous years. As these bright purple gems burst into bloom all
over the town, Banstead Rotary Club celebrated!
