Parracombe School Wins The ‘Name the Ferry’ Competition

Posted: 18/05/2010

The first of the Severn Link ferries has now been officially named Rapparee, after one of Ilfracombe’s most lovely coastal areas.

As part of the Severn Link Name the Ferry competition, schoolchildren all over North Devon sent in entries to choose a suitable name, but it was Parracombe School in the heart of Exmoor which came up with the name that captured the imagination of Severn Link and is now proudly displayed upon the vessel.

As part of their prize, the children of Parracombe School will win a trip to the grand launch event and also experience their own special trip on the ferry across to South Wales, where they’ll meet the Welsh school who has named the Rapparee’s sister vessel. We’ll be reporting back on the winning Welsh school very shortly, so watch this space!

For the full story on how Parracombe School came to name the Rapparee, please check out the press release in our media centre.
