Chief fire officer Jeff Burrow and Charlie Andrews (7)
were at the business end of a fire hose yesterday.
Once gate tallies are finalised, more than 1000 people are
expected to have attended the ''Blueskin on Show'' annual
event at Bland park in Waitati yesterday; a combination of
the Blueskin A&P Society's show day, a car boot sale,
annual harvest market and the Blueskin Community Market.
Blueskin A&P Society committee member Alisdair Morrison
said numbers were up on a year ago, after the event was
shifted to a Sunday, to avoid children's Saturday sport
''It was a brilliant day ... good weather throughout,'' he
said. Gate donations and stall holder contributions go
towards the park's overall upkeep, he said.
