Spring has sprung in the Hospice grounds, with pockets of colour emerging all around our pretty gardens.

The vivid picture has been boosted this year thanks to the presence of 1,500 purple crocus flowers which were planted and donated by the Hereford Marches Rotary Club back in November.

Gill Rivers and Kirsty Tyler, from the Club, dropped by this week to check on their progress.

‘We are delighted to have been able to contribute to the gardens here at St Michael’s,’ said Kirsty, who is the club’s President.

‘Hearing the lovely comments from staff and patients have made it all worthwhile.

‘We will definitely be continuing our support for St Michael’s.’

The donation of the bulbs is part of the Rotary Club’s Purple for Polio – a worldwide Rotary campaign to eradicate polio.

Anyone wishing to volunteer their services as a gardener at St Michael’s should contact Stephen Rabbitts on 01432 851 000.
