New cartoon characters are totally toontastic!

Following on from and inspired by our schools character competition and cartoon workshops local cartoonist Colin Shelbourn (of the Westmorland Gazette) created 8 characters that we can use to highlight issues and celebrate special features of the Windermere catchment. The characters (a tree, a boat, a detergent box, a fish, a sheep, Himalayan balsam, soil and a time traveller) are being digitised by Lancaster University computing students. Once that’s done we plan to train our education volunteers so they can work with groups of young and old to create their own cartoon Windermere stories using an animation programme (if you’re interested in getting involved see below).
