After another sell out we are very sad and disappointed to say the Fashion Show will not be going ahead due to the Coronavirus, we are in discussions to see if we cancel or postpone, if we cancel refunds will be available, date tbc or if we postpone your tickets will be valid for a date in the future, further updates will follow as soon as we know. Stay Safe everyone 👗 🥿 👖








END POLIO NOW

I hope that you have noticed the purple crocus that are blooming in the town. Some have been planted by Bishops Waltham in Bloom and a further display were planted in the autumn of 2018 in the Junior and Infant Schools and at the Hoe Road roundabout by the Rotary Club. (picture).

Why crocus and why purple? Crocus was chosen as it blooms in late February early March as Rotary International celebrates its anniversary each 23rd February. It was started in 1905 = 115 years ago. Why purple? Rotary International launched a project in 1985 to protect the children of the world from poliomylitus (Polio for short) . A virus that affects the central nervous system causing limbs to become flaccid. It mainly affects children under five. Fortunately, there has not been an outbreak of polio in the UK for many years but it still affects children in Pakistan and Afghanistan. Children can be immunised against polio by giving them just two drops of vaccine. In countries such as Pakistan, Afghanistan and other countries that are vulnerable to polio outbreaks when children taking part in mass immunisations have a purple dye put onto the little finger of their left hand. This enables immunisation teams to check that all the children have received the drops. Hence the colour associated with the project to rid the whole world of polio.


See the crocus after the next bit of editorial
