A Water Fight with a Fire Engine, Eye Cricket Club, Suffolk - 5th August 2019

Wavy gives us a tip-off that there's going to be a water fight up at Eye Cricket Club with something that might be a little bigger than a regular water pistol or even super soaker. That "something" turns out to be a fire engine courtesy of Suffolk Fire and Rescue Service, which comes a long to dish out a proper soaking thanks to its on-board load of 1,500 litres of water

Wavy stands around outside the cricket club

Oak and Fred play a spot of cricket

The fire engine squeezes up the narrow lane

The engine is parked

The crew unwind the hosepipe

The hose is tested

All watery hell breaks loose

There are some nice rainbows in the sky

Oak leaps about

Fred gets a soaking

The fireman keeps the spraying going

It's sometimes a two-person job

A fireman detatches the jet nozzle

Harry sneaks up from behind

There's a wall of spray

Even the fire-fighters are not immune

Harry, Fred and Oak are properly wet

A fire-fighter sets up a wall of spray

They're back on the regular hose

A boy vainly fights back with a small squirter

Fred runs around some more

Oak gets a close-range blast

Someone gets it with a bucket

Fred's proud of his overall level of wetness

The fire fighters pack up the engine

There's a post-water-fight barbeque

There's a cool collection of old lawn rollers under a tree

A vintage lawn roller

The barbeque continues
