SPRING: March 21 – June 20

Spring Farming Hose

Spring Farming

Spring has still had been a very exciting time for most of us, with all that snow, sledging and it has been very hectic for farmers this year!  Numerous cold blasts have been hit, recently, from the Beast from the East, Storm Emma and most recently the Mini Beast from the East. Now another blast of cold is expected across the nation and the country could remain cold and wintery up until the second half of April!  The good news for farmers is that the worst of weather conditions have gone.  Farmers, throughout the UK, have been praised for their efforts to help stranded motorists and clear roads after the “Beasts of the East”.

Pancakes all day!

Pancakes all day!

Get your pans ready for Tuesday 13th February.

Pancake Day has been celebrated by Britons for centuries.  Known also as Shrove Tuesday, its exact date, rather confusingly, changes every year, because it is determined by when Easter falls. But it is always the day preceding Ash Wednesday (the first day of Lent), and always falls in February or March. Pancakes are associated with the day preceding Lent because they were a way to use up rich foods such as eggs, milk, and sugar, before the fasting season of the 40 days of Lent.

The most famous pancake race, at Olney in Buckinghamshire, has been held since 1445. The contestants, traditionally women, carry a frying pan and race over a 415-yard course to the finishing line. The rules are strict: contestants have to toss their pancake at both the start and the finish, as well as wear an apron and a scarf. Traditionally, when men want to participate, they must dress up as a housewife (usually an apron and a bandanna). The race is followed by a church service.

How to make the perfect pancakes.

Easy peasy lemon squeezy

Do you have a favourite topping or maybe take turns on flipping the mixture?

Here at Masterflex, jam, sugar, lemon juice or maple syrup are some of the more popular choices to have with pancakes.

Munich – 60 years on – remembering the “Busby Babes”

images

On 6th February 1958, the aircraft carrying the Manchester United football team, its staff, journalists and supporters crashed, killing 23 of the 44 passengers.

United had just beaten Red Star Belgrade and where on their way home from Belgrade when they stopped at Munich Riem Airport for re-fueling.  With a blizzard blowing and vision poor, the aircraft attempted to take off 3 times, but a layer of slush prevented the aircraft from taking off and it crashed into a fence and hit a house.  Twenty passengers died on board, and three died later in hospital. Forever remembering the Busby Babes 60 years on.

Happy birthday Karl!

Happy birthday Karl!

IMG-20150129-WA0005_resized

One of our skilled production operatives is celebrating his birthday here at Masterflex today.

Karl Summerscales (also known as Taz) has turned 33 today.

He has worked at Masterflex for 10 years.

On a daily basis you can hear Karl singing to the radio, whilst setting the equipment up ready for the hoses to be made.

He enjoyed an eventful night out in Manchester with his friends over the weekend but is now hard at work making the hoses.

Give Masterflex a call, place an order and Karl maybe the one who manufactures your product.
