Happy Birthday Queen Elizabeth!!!

Happy-Birthday-To-The-Queen-AmreenBorn April 21st 1929, and christened Elizabeth Alexandra Mary in the private chapel at Buckingham Palace, Princess Elizabeth spent much of her early years enjoying a quiet family life with her parents, and sister Princess Margaret.

Today she turns 91 years old and usually spends her actual birthday privately.

The occasion is marked publicly by gun salutes in central London at midday: a 41 gun salute in Hyde Park, a 21 gun salute in Windsor Great Park and a 62 gun salute at the Tower of London.

What would you buy her?

Maybe flexible hoses are not at the top of Her Majesty’s list but we can manufacture a large range of hoses and ductings to suit your individual requirements.

May Day

mayday_icon

Did you know that today, Friday 1st May, is known as May Day?

May Day is most associated with towns and villages celebrating springtime fertility of the soil, livestock and revelry with village fetes and community gatherings.

Traditional English May Day celebrations include Morris dancing, crowning a May Queen and maypole dances.

Singing and eating cake are usually part of the day.

Here at Masterflex, there will be no singing, dancing or Maypoles, just enjoying the long weekend.

We are back open as normal Tuesday 5th May, 8am-5pm.

Will you be flying your flag for St George?

st-george

Did you know today is Saint George’s Day?

It is celebrated by various Christian Churches and by the several nations, kingdoms, countries, and cities of which Saint George is the patron saint. Saint George’s Day is celebrated on 23 April, the traditionally accepted date of Saint George’s death in 303 AD. For Eastern Orthodox Churches (which use the Julian calendar), ’23 April’ currently falls on 6 May of the Gregorian calendar

Since Easter often falls close to Saint George’s Day, the church celebration of the feast may be moved from 23 April. In England, where it is the National Saint’s Day, for 2011 and 2014 the Anglican and Catholic calendars celebrate Saint George’s Day on the first Monday after the Octave of Easter (2 May 2011 and 28 April 2014, respectively).Similarly, the Eastern Orthodox celebration of the feast moves accordingly to the first Monday after Easter or, as it is sometimes called, to the Monday of Bright Week.

St George’s Day was a major feast and national holiday in England on a par with Christmas from the early 15th century. The Cross of St. George was flown in 1497 by John Cabot on his voyage to discover Newfoundland and later by Sir Francis Drake and Sir Walter Raleigh. In 1620 it was the flag that was flown on the foremast of the Mayflower (with the early Union Flag combining St. George’s Cross of England with St. Andrew’s Saltire of Scotland on the mainmast) when the Pilgrim Fathers arrived in Plymouth, Massachusetts.

Here are a few facts about today:

*Shakespeare was born – and died – on Saint George’s Day.

*It is traditional to wear a red rose in your lapel.

*Jerusalem is typically sung on St George’s Day in churches.

*April 23rd is the feast day of Saint George and the National Day for England.

*St George is most widely known for slaying a dragon.

*The most widely recognized symbol of St George’s Day is St George’s cross.
