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

The first heir to the British throne to be born in a hospital, (St Mary’s Hospital in London), where his own two children, Prince George and Princess Charlotte would be born three decades later.

William was educated at Eton College and later attended St Andrews University, where of course, he met Kate Middleton.

After he graduated at St Andrews University in Scotland, Prince William decided to follow a Military Career and join the Royal Air Force. He underwent Helicopter Flying Training in order to become a full-time pilot with the RAF Search and Rescue Force in early 2009.  William was commissioned as a Second Lieutenant and given the nickname “Billy the Fish” a pun on the name “William of Wales”.   It is said that he shares his love of Helicopters with his Son, Prince George.

In April 2011, millions watched as Prince William married Kate Middleton and they became the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge.  Later Prince George and Princess Charlotte were to be born in to the Windsor Family.  Here’s wishing the Prince a very happy Birthday!!!

Roger Bannister………the first man ever to run a mile in less than four minutes!!!!!


Breaking the four minute barrier was first achieved on the 6th May 1954 at Oxford University’s Iffley Road Track, by Roger Bannister at the age of 25 years old.  The actual time was 3.59.4 minutes – that’s an average running speed of 15mph………………The track was later named after him!!

In 1975 he was quite rightly knighted for his legendary achievement and he became Sir Roger Gilbert Bannister.  He became the first Chairman of the Sports Council (now call Sport England) and went on to become a Neurologist and Master of Pembroke College in Oxford, before retiring in 1993.

Happy 100th Birthday to Vera Lynn…. The forces “Sweetheart”…!!!!

Image result for dame vera lynn

Vera Welch was born on 20 March 1917 in East Ham, part of east London.  By the age of seven, Vera was singing in working men’s clubs.  When she turned 11, Vera took her grandmother’s maiden name of Lynn as a stage name.

In 1936, when she was 19, she had her first solo record – called Up the Wooden Hill to Bedfordshire. By the age of 22 she had sold more than a million records.  However, it was during World War Two that her reputation was made. She frequently sang to the troops at morale-boosting concerts, becoming known as “The Forces’ Sweetheart”. One off her most popular songs was “We’ll Meet Again” which was released in 1939.

She was appointed OBE in 1969, made a Dame in 1975, and a Companion of Honour in 2016.

What an amazing life this Lady has had.  Happy Birthday Dame Vera Lynn from Masterflex
