Who’s looking forward toWimbledon 2017?????

Did you know the Wimbledon Championship started on 9 July 1877 (140 years ago) and the Gentlemen’s Singles was the only event held? I never realised that this is actually the oldest Tennis Tournament in the World!

Today is the first day of the 2017 Tournament  with British ladies hopeful, Laura Robson, who shot to fame when she won the Junior Girls’ Singles title at Wimbledon in 2008, she is set to play on Court 18 today at 11.30, against #97 ranking, Beatriz Haddad Maia a 21 year from Brazil.  Let’s hope Laura does well today!

Later, sees the British Mens Singles get on the way with our very own #1 ranking ……..Sir Andy Murray!!!! …..taking Centre Court at 1.00pm.  He is due to play Alexander Stanislavovich Bublik  a Russian-born Kazakhstani tennis player.  Ranking #134.

Keeping the Streets Clean!

At Masterflex, we have a range of hoses suitable for use with street cleaners, grass cutting and leaf litter collection.

The Streetmaster LF hose is a black, 0.7mm wall thickness polyester polyurethane hose, reinforced with an embedded PVC coated high tensile steel wire helix.
(This is the large black hose you see on the back of street sweepers.)

Master PUR L, Master PUR H and Master PUR Hx are clear Polyester Polyurethane hoses with a copper coated steel support helix, (exactly the type of hoses found on the John Deere tractor mowers) and are built with flexibility and abrasion resistance in mind.

Hard wearing, flexible and with the Masterflex Trivolution additives to help protect against bacterial attack. Masterflex

 

Election Day!!!!!

election

Did you know that it was only in 1905 the post of Prime Minister was officially given recognition?

However, it has been said that the first ever Prime Minister for Great Britain was Sir Robert Walpole, who led Great Britain for 21 years in 1721-42, although some may argue that the first “Prime Minister” of the United Kingdom (Great Britain and Ireland) was in fact William Pitt the Younger.

During the reign of Queen Elizabeth II there has been 14 Prime Ministers, the longest serving Prime Minister is said to be Margaret Thatcher, also known as the “Iron Lady”.

With such issues as the NHS and Health, the Environment and Pollution and not forgetting the issue Brexit, at stake…………Who is the right man or woman be our next Prime Minister?  Will it be Theresa May or Jeremy Corbyn or another!!!!!

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

images

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.

CHILDHOOD MEMORIES OF THE GRAND NATIONAL!!!!!

images

We loved the Grand National in our house………….at 3.00pm on a Saturday afternoon, live on BBC1, the Grand National would take place, but we never watched it at home!  My Dad would go through the “pull out” in the paper and contemplate which horses he would lay his bets on.  Then he’d turn to us kids and say “pick a horse”.   I always picked one that reminded me of someone or a place I had visited.  We’d all get ready, as a family and get our coats on whilst my Dad went to put his bets on in town, then we’d make a dash to the local Dixons shop and watch the Grand National on their TV’s………..in colour!!!!  There would be a huge crowd all cheering their horses on and waving their tickets……….Good luck for Saturday and may the best horse win!!!!

Here at Masterflex, we provide and manufacture specialist hoses for grass cuttings, hedge cuttings and leave collection in various sizes,  together with hoses for Woodworking, Plastics, Chemical/Pharmaceutical, Food, Automotive, Military and General Engineering.
