Funion Bargee gets a new look!

The Funion Bargee has been given a new look thanks to some of the children and young people who have visited it on play sessions recently. We asked them to produce pictures which we could then put on the side of the boat to make is look more playful. They came up with loads of ideas and we held a competition to choose the ones which would finally be added to the boat. Mandy, one of the boat rangers, has a background in community art and led the project. She also worked with SignaRama  in Milton Keynes to transform the children’s pictures into transfers which could then be applied to the boat’s superstructure. Now nobody can mistake the Funion Bargee as it travels down the Grand Union for anything other than a playboat.
