Pupils at North Oxfordshire Academy stepped out from their rehearsals for the Rotary Crocus Concerts in St Mary’s Church, Banbury earlier this month to show off the purple crocuses in the churchyard.

Members of the both of the town’s Rotary clubs have worked tirelessly over the years to help promote the initiative to help eradicate the disease, as part of the End Polio Now campaign.

And Bloxham Primary School organised its very own Crocus Concert last Thursday in Bloxham Church. The school choir consists of 70 members and is believed to be one of the biggest primary school choirs in the area.
