What a flippin’ success

For the past four years we have been helping Nicky and Paul King, owners of The Three Wishes, to organise a pancake race down Cheap Street in Sherborne.  This year we decided to ask the children from Sherborne Primary to take part. The moment we saw Mr Barge, (teacher of class 6) and Head Teacher Mr Roberts marching down Cheap Street with 45 children ready (and very excited !) to start flipping – we knew it was going to be a very hard fought contest!

It was a beautiful spring day which (along with the huge noise created by the children cheering on their classmates!) helped draw a huge crowd to watch the races. There were three heats for the children before the final took place, with the winner receiving the first prize of a tea party at The Three Wishes.  The event finished with a race for the teachers which got the crowds going even more!

Back in the office Kirsty was busy packing up this collection of 80’s summertime inspired goodies. As a competition in Badger ales’ newsletter,  readers had to correctly name either of the lead characters in Miami Vice!! … can you think of them?! The winner received amongst other delights – a box set of Miami Vice, some Wham bars and a Frankie Says Relax T-shirt!

As part of her work for Denhay Nickie has been in contact with her old pal Chris Evans at Radio Two. Nickie alerted Chris to the fact that it was Bacon Connoisseurs Week (21st– 27th March) – Chris then dutifully alerted the country!!
