Teams travel from far and wide
ON Sunday 12th July Bosley Tug of War Club hosted a charity tug of war event in aid of the East Cheshire Hospice.
Teams from around the country took part, including sides from as far afield as Somerset and Northumberland.
The event took place at Glebe Farm in Astbury, with teams flexing their muscles in different weight classes for mens, ladies and youths.
The winning teams in different weight classes were the teams from Norton, Lincoln and Felton Eccles.
The home team, Bosley Tug of War Club, missed out on a spot in the finals of the different weight classes on the day.
The tug of war event raised £350 for the East Cheshire Hospice.
Bosley spokesman Alan Knott said: “Thanks to everyone who came along to support the event, with thanks being extended to Glebe Farm Shop in Astbury for providing the venue, and Olympus Trophies and the Bollington Brewing Company for supplying the prizes for the event.”
Bosley Tug of War Club will be running the charity tug of war competition in aid of the East Cheshire Hospice again next year.
Anyone interested in forming a team to take part should keep their eye out for the date next year.
Bosley will be competing at the European Club championships in Belfast in September, 50 years on from the club’s first European Title at the very first European Tug of War Championship in 1965.
