MEMBERS of Bridlington’s Rotary Club joined pupils at Burlington Junior School in setting the scene for a Spring surprise.

In a patch of land just outside the school, green fingered rotarians and members of Burlington School’s gardening club set about planting daffodil bulbs - which will flower next year.

The Rotary Club has been working planting bulbs with youngsters from around the town for many years, but the tradition made a welcome return this year after the severe cold snap in 2010 prevented any planting.

Rotary member Paul Atkinson explained: “A member started the tradition many years ago as part of a project to improve Bridlington and we target outside spaces which improve the look of the area.

“We always find that these places are very well looked after as the children are the ones planting the flowers, so they are more likely to nurture them.”

The bulbs were donated by Walter Green and his team from East Riding of Yorkshire Council, who prepare the ground for the rotarians and children to simply pop in a bulb and cover it over with earth.
