IOM Airport Fire Station Open Day

BCIOM Fire station cheque

When we were invited to take the Giant Colon to the Airport Fire Station 2014 Open Day we agreed straightaway, however when the day came around the wind speed was too strong for us to set the inflatable up outside the station.  Imagine if the Giant Colon had taken off across the airfield – we would have had lots of publicity but not the best way to be remembered!  The firemen were very resourceful and didn’t want to let the day go by without seeing the Giant Colon in operation so they moved their engines out of the station so we could set up indoors where we were much happier.  Lots of people came to the event even though the weather wasn’t as good as they had hoped, and we were delighted to receive a cheque for £650 from the funds raised on the day.
