The planting was part of the Rotary Clubs’ campaign to eradicate polio worldwide.

Members of The Rotary Club of Bromsgrove were present at the event and also celebrated the newly-refurbished Rotary Club plaques.

For years they were situated in Mill Lane but have now been moved to near the war monument.

Rotarian Ellen Evans said: “The children had a great time planting the bulbs and it’s a fantastic way of getting an important message out.”
