Children from the Linton area are being encouraged to get creative by naming the village’s new fire engine.
Firefighters are asking youngsters to submit their ideas for naming the new fire engine, which will then be displayed in the dashboard of the appliance.
Anyone under the age of 16 and living in the Linton area can enter the competition, which is being run by Cambridgeshire Fire and Rescue Service’s on-call Linton Fire Station.
Lee Allen, watch commander at Linton, said: “We’re really proud to have a new fire engine at the station and would like to get the local community involved in welcoming her.
“Entrants should think up a name for our fire engine with a maximum of eight letters. The winning name will be picked by the watch commander and crew and then displayed in the fire engine.”

To enter, e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org with your suggested fire engine name (max eight letters) with the child’s name, age, address, school and contact telephone number for a parent or guardian. Permission from a parent/guardian must be obtained before entering.
The closing date is November 5. The winner will also take part in a photo opportunity with the firefighters and engine from Linton either at the fire station or their school.
