What locations have said
"It was great to welcome Barge Fiodra to Merchant Square during our Mindful March event - The mindfulness workshops, meditation, yoga and educational film screenings tied in well with our events programme. There was a lot of interest in the barge and its activities with our occupiers and residents on the estate as well as other visitors. The crew were easy to work with and we would be happy to recommend them."
