Macclesfield Express - - SEARCH - TUG OF WAR

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.
