Shrimps Travel

This was a cheery sight on a dull day, a bus decorated with Morecambe Football Club's colours, a team of the lower leagues. An idea of two fans which is now reality.  On the left is the team's captain, Tim Bentley and in the background the red roses of Lancashire and a sailing boat which was until recently their badge. The nickname of the club is The Shrimps, the ingredient of  possibly the most famous food of Morecambe Bay (Potted Shrimps). On the bus towards the front is their rather understated new badge of a lone shrimp, together with the motto of this seaside town and of the  club  "Beauty surrounds, health abounds".  The old badge and the new rather ghostly shrimp:

it is an eyecatcher. but I think I prefer the old logo.

Very nice, certainly more creative than the Arsenal Bus (both my hubby and and son are fans) ;-)

this is a delightful bus sign. the old logo is much more attractive.

A very attractive bus -- and now I know what a potted shrimp is.

Oh dear, super post for Signs, Joy, but I'm seeing so much advertising on buses in Asia that I'm now seeing them as adding to the what I call the new urban blight: in-your-face advertising whichever way you look.

That's cheerful! And a kind of funny name for a team as it doesn't sound too very powerful. (But my high school's team mascot was the Bantam (chicken) -- go figure! )

A colorful bus with a very festive and cheery sign covering the side. I screams FUN, FUN, FUN!
