Yesterday – went to Luton ish, and the traffic was pretty bad on the way back. All the big motorway signs said “FIREFIGHTER STRIKE PLEASE DRIVE WITH EXTRA CARE” Saw some of the green goddesses. They look dated. Carry on Firefighting style 50’s Green Goddess Engines. Don’t feel that safe driving / being inside at the moment ! Eirene and… Read more →

The first half of the performance, was delivered by 22 superb… Read more →
