Inverclyde is under attack!! Ship builders urgently needed! Zombie pirates are stranded ashore in Inverclyde – their ship wrecked just off Greenock and without a way of returning to sea they are running wild across Inverclyde!


Save the citizens of Inverclyde by building a new ship to send the zombie pirates back to sea! Build your boat from any shipbuilding materials at home (lego, play doh, card, paper, junk).


Prizes available for the most creative and innovative boat that floats well enough to send those zombie pirates off on their merry way!
