Victory for Fylde

WebTugofwar 090611

A FANTASTIC Fylde tug-of-war team triumphed in a charity contest in Parliament.

The team, comprising workers from BAE Warton, successfully defeated a team from construction giants Taylor Wimpey, getting revenge for a defeat in the same event last year.

Their victory was part of a series of contests as part of an annual Parliamentary tug-of-war competition which raises money for Macmillan Cancer Care.

Mark Menzies MP, who was present to support the Fylde team, said: “This is a brilliant even which is a bit of fun and raises money for a great cause.

“Congratulations to the workers from BAE Systems on their victory.”

Other battles on the big day included Royal Marines versus Merseyside Fire and Rescue and 30th Signal Regiment versus 17th Port and Regiment as well as a House of Lords versus a House of Commons team.
