Kids will have it all mapped out helping to mend Old Jack's boat

A new free, fun sticker trail has launched to enable families visiting a national park fishing village to step into the shoes of the lead character in the popular CBeebies children’s programme Old Jack’s Boat.

The trail will guide families through the beautiful village of Staithes that has been the backdrop for the popular pre-school programme since it was first broadcast in January 2013.

Armed with a leaflet, which can be picked up from the caf├ęs, shops and other public places in Staithes, visitors are invited to help Old Jack, played in the series by actor Bernard Cribbins, to mend his boat The Rainbow.

SNICKETS AND COBBLED LANES
The storyline then guides visitors through the snickets and cobbled lanes to different places in the village as they search out six of Old Jack’s animated friends and characters, enabling youngsters to really immerse themselves in the fictional world of their favourite programme.

The sticker trail has been created by the North York Moors national park authority as part of the Coastal Communities Fund Sea Life, See Life project.

The national park's head of promotion and tourism Catriona McLees said “It’s great to have an added attraction in the village and the community has really got behind the new trail so there will be plenty of places distributing the leaflets and the stickers.

“The trail is a simple, yet effective way of enabling families to get the most out of their visit to Staithes, keep the kids occupied and learn more about the fishing heritage that forms the foundation of the Old Jack’s Boat story.”
