Ridding the World of Polio

Tenterden Rotary Club were delighted by the response we received  from local charities, businesses, schools and community groups  in our fight to eradicate Polio worldwide. Interested parties were being given Crocus bulbs to plant as a symbol of the drive to completely wipe out the terrible disease.

The Crocus reminds us of the drop of purple dye which health workers use to colour the fingers of those children they have vaccinated in each country they visit.

The crocuses are now blooming at High Halden School - their gardening Club are very excited!


Tenderden Rotarian David Ward, who works as Secretary General of the Global New Car Assessment Programme gave fellow members a brief history of car safety. He highlighted the remarkable progress in car safety over the last twenty years which have seen a 50% reduction in road deaths in the UK and across the European Union. This is the result of mandatory crash test standards and consumer safety rating by the European New Car Assessment Programme. To celebrate their anniversary Euro NCAP recently compared the crash test performance of the 1997 Rover 100 with a 2016 Honda Jazz. The images from the test make it very clear that occupant protection twenty years ago was completely inadequate. David also highlighted the potential of new crash avoidance systems such as electronic stability control and autonomous emergency braking to continue to make our roads safer.

Here is a link to the Euro NCAP test which might be worth adding in:
