Roses from Rotary

Watton Rotary makes a welcome addition to a local community space in honour of a long-term member.

The Rotary Club of Watton has added a Rose Garden to the Sensory Garden at the Dragonfly Gallery in Watton.

Three Rotary Sunrise Roses have been donated to the Dragonfly Gallery and planted by Dragonfly Gallery staff.

These roses were donated in memory of Martin Anscombe – a long-serving member of Watton Rotary who sadly passed away in July.

Three Rotary Sunrise Roses were donated to the Dragonfly Gallery in memory of Martin Anscombe.

Martin’s partner Helen dedicated the roses to him as well as placing the plaque in the grounds of the Sensory Garden.

Two of the roses were donated by Watton Rotary and the third was donated by Peter Beales Roses, Attleborough, who are the growing and marketing partners for the roses.

The Sensory Garden has been a fairly recent but popular addition to the Watton community and has a group of volunteers who maintain the garden on a weekly basis.

The dedication was also attended by Rotarians Mike Harvey, who made the arrangements with the Dragonfly Gallery,  Mike Haythorpe and David Branson, plus Dragonfly member Bronwen Tyler and Roger Harrold and Katharine Wolstenholme from the Wayland Partnership.
