Burning rubber 2014 – some reflections

Rowena Farr - August 4th, 2014

Friday saw the 4th Burning Rubber. Despite some slightly damp weather in parts, the fire was still alight, the bouncy castle stayed up and Landrovers were driven around the field (& became a little stuck..) here’s a few highlights:

Fire, fire, fire

After digging a small fire-pit, the bonfire was successfully alight.

Bouncy castle (add space hoppers)

As well as the challenge of trying to bounce without slipping over, the brave bouncy castlers were tasked with playing volley ball with space hoppers.

King Street Totem!

Team Rubber’s office is located on King Street in central Bristol. Friday was a bad day for the ‘king of king street’ who became the 2014 totem for burning rubber. Hello fire.

Land rover fun

What else should the muddy ditch be used for at the side of a field? Learning of the day: always have 2 landrovers when driving through unknown ditches!
