Results day for GCSE’s

It’s an anxious and nervous day for all the Girls and Boys today, as the GSCE results are here. Introduced to the UK in 1988, the GCSE was to replace the “O’Level” and the “CSE” examinations.  One of the main changes consisted of two years of coursework, which was to contribute towards their final results.

After revising, taking the exams and then relaxing over the summer, today is the day all their hard work has hopefully paid off!!!

Masterflex would like to take this opportunity to wish you all the best of luck and we hope you get the results you wish for.  The next decision will be what to do next????

You may decide to have a career in the Motor industry, Construction, Woodwork, Medicine, Food or maybe the Military, to name but a few. Here at Masterflex Technical Hoses we have manufactured and supplied hoses for all of these industries. For further information, please check out our website or simply call our friendly Sales Team on 0161 626 8066.

Time for some repairs………Big Ben will be silent for several months!

What an iconic Landmark and probably the most famous clock in the world, Big Ben.

Big Ben is the giant bell in the belfry of the Elizabeth Tower at the Palace of Westminster, which has been overlooking our Capital City of London, for over 151 years, and has become a very popular tourist site.

Cast at Whitechapel Bell Foundry on the 10th April 1858, the famous clock is now in need of some repairs due to cracks in the masonry and corrosion to the cast iron roof, so whilst the construction and mechanical works are to be carried out, there will be no more chimes during this period.  So at 12.00pm on the 21st August there will be no more dongs……..!!!!!

 

Here at Masterflex Technical Hoses we supply many different types of flexible ducting for Construction and Mechanical purposes.  Feel free to check out our website or contact our friendly Sales Team by ringing 0161 626 8066 or emailing sales@masterflex-uk.com

This weekend sees the Monaco Grand Prix.

monaco_gp_map-2016

What a Circuit!!!! ……..…it consists on the city Streets of Monte Carlo and La Condamine, which include the famous harbour.  The Circuit has many elevation changes and tight corners and the narrow course makes it one of the demanding tracks in Formula One racing.  It has been named as an exceptional location of glamour and prestige!!!

The first “Grand Prix Automobile do Monaco” was by invite only and was held on the 14th April 1929.  The first ever winner was William Grover-Williams, driving a Bugatti.

Graham Hill was known as “Mr Monaco” due to his five Monaco victories back in the 60’s, however this record was beaten by the late Ayrton Senna, a record of six times back in 1987, 1989, 1990, 1991, 1992 and 1993.

Let’s hope Lewis Hamilton MBE, last year’s winner, can excel to victory once more!!!!

Masterflex Technical Hoses Limited is able to provide hoses for Exhaust extraction from vehicles. Size range 38mm – 900mm.  Temperature range up to +1100°C.

Eurovision Song Contest in Ukraine!!!

In 1967, 50 years ago, Sandie Shaw won the Eurovision Song Contest with “Puppet on a String” for the United Kingdom …………can Lucie Jones, this year’s representative,  go on to win the 2017 Eurovision Contest with her song “Never Give Up on You” or will the favourites, from Italy, take the title??

The last Eurovision Contest the United Kingdom won was back in 1997 with “Love Shine a Light” by Katrina and the Waves.  Prior to that, in 1981 we saw a fabulous and unforgettable routine from the Eurovision winners, Buzz Fizz and “Making Your Mind Up”………. who can forget the ripping off the skirts!!.  Whilst back in 1976, Brotherhood of Man invented a catchy dance to “Save all your Kisses for Me”, and in 1969, Lulu shot to the winner’s pole with a “Boom Bang-a-bang……..”

In 1956 we saw the birth of the Eurovision Song Contest, held at the Teatro Kursaal in Lugano, Switzerland on Thursday 24 May, Where Switzerland won the Contest.  The first ever winner was Lys Assia with her song “Refrain”

Masterflex Technical Hoses Limited wishes all the Contestants, the best of luck!!.
