Children brought in a frying pan with a cooked pancake which they tossed while racing. It was great fun and marks Shrove Tuesday in a memorable way.
Parents were invited to come along, to watch and take part in their own race too!
Shrove Tuesday is the day before Lent starts: the Tuesday before Ash Wednesday. It’s a day of penitence, to clean the soul, and a day of celebration as the last chance to feast before Lent begins.
