Saturday 22nd August – Stoke Bruene.
The Funion Bargee was invited to the Blisworth Tunnel 25th Anniversary. It was 25 years ago to the day, that the Blisworth Tunnel re-opened after being closed for 4 years for major repairs.
Lots of children and their families visited the boat and took part in the activities on offer. The most popular seemed to be the glass painting – decorating cut out shapes of fish, butterflies and flowers with glass paint and then attaching them to a stick with a streamer. Making pirate hats was popular too, not only with the boys. Badge making though was a big draw.
