Name the New Ferry

3 February 2010, 14:53

The new Ilfracombe to Swansea ferry could be named by local school children.

Severn Link are asking North Devon schools to come up with ideas for the name of one of the FastCat ferries - which are due to launch this Spring.

The other ferry will be named by children from the other side of the Bristol Channel.

The competition is designed to help children learn more about the shared mythology and heritage of the two regions, and help to create links with schools in South Wales.

It's free to enter, and there are prizes for every school that enters.
