Nottingham Trent students show their flare with historic boat paintwork design



Students at Nottingham Trent University have designed the

graphics and décor for the boat that will represent Nottinghamshire

in the Thames Jubilee Pageant.

The design was chosen by a judging panel, featuring Sir

Andrew Buchanan, the Lord Lieutenant of Nottinghamshire and Cdr Peter Moore,

the former High Sheriff of Nottinghamshire.

Juliet Gooden, part of the design team, told the BBC News

website, “The Queen’s Diamond Jubilee is a great celebration and we feel

extremely privileged to have been chosen.

“We hope the Queen likes it.”

The boat, which will have injured soldiers, county

representatives and members of the public on board, features a themed design

that incorporates Robin Hood and Nottingham Castle.

The Thames Jubilee takes place on 3 June and celebrates 60

years of Her Majesty the Queen on the Throne.
