Canal & River Trust - BCN 250
In October 2019 we were invited by the Canal & River Trust to help celebrate the 250th anniversary of Birmingham Canal Navigations - the 100 miles of canals that are such an important part of our city's heritage.
We worked with children from four different Birmingham schools to make flags, giant banners, bunting, and a huge cardboard narrowboat!
On Saturday 2nd November we met up with the staff, children and families to join in with the celebrations just outside the ICC, which included a rousing speech from James Brindley himself, a procession of boats, and live music.
Well done to all the children who worked so hard, and the staff and families for their support, from Brookfields Primary School, Nelson Primary School, St Thomas CE Academy & St Johns & St Peters CE Academy.
