Fireman Fun

The summer season means that there's lots of Summer Fayres popping up at schools, villages and towns all over the country.  Everyone whips out their best cake and candy and spends more than they should on second-hand cuddly toys.

These are the days.

Kudos to the service folk who attend these days; the police men, the guide dog fundraisers (plus dogs!) and firefighters.

The firefighters in particular make a lot of dreams come true just by letting small children climb into those huge cabins and stick a fire helmet on for five minutes.

Amongst all the bric-a-brac, second-hand books and bouncy castles, the fire engine is certainly the most attended and most 'wow' some event for small children - my two always make a bee-line for it!

And I am always amazed at the patience and diligence the lovely firemen display when dealing with wee kids and sometimes quite pushy parents.

Thank you firemen and women, for making little people happy!
