Pancake Day

February 20, 2012 at 4:59 pm Leave a comment

Well, can you believe it …. it’s that time of year again already! For some people Shrove Tuesday is about eating pancakes as they use up ingredients that are traditionally restricted for Lent. For me, for  the past five years it has become synonymous with seeing children hurtling down Cheap Street like a stampede of pancake tossing wildebeest – but I wouldn’t change it for the world!

That’s right, tomorrow is The Three Wishes Pancake Race! This is the fifth year that we’ve helped Nicky, Paul and Brett organise the race and every year it’s been getting bigger, better and louder!  Although the volume increase may be caused by my liberal use of the air horn. I use it not only to start the race but also to gather the competitors, announce that the race will be happening and anything else that I can think of on the day that allows me to give it a blast, and of course I have been using it today to check that it is working!

Tomorrow at 1.30pm we will see Sherborne Abbey and Sherborne Primary school pupils going head to head, or should that be pan to pan, to see who will be crowned 2012’s fastest flipper. If you’re in the area why not come down to cheer on the flippers.  For those that can’t make it, don’t worry – I will announce the results here next week.  If any London 2012 organisers happen to be reading, we are available on a race organising consultancy basis!
