Village News

February, apart from being the shortest month

of the year is also the month in which Shrove

Tuesday falls.


We associate that with 'Pancakes', but that food

 item has been around since the Bronze & Iron

Ages.  

With the rise of Christianity it has been absorbed

into the calendar to provide an opportunity to use

 up diary and wheat products before the

beginning of the festival of Lent.


To celebrate this event our local W.I. Recently

organised a 'Pancake Race', primarily to raise

funds for their 100th anniversary which falls in 2018.


As well as the races themselves – Yes, some of the Mums joined in as well – Well Done you!



Pancake Race Day

Lining up for the start.

There was of course traditional games including 'Splat The Rat', a 'Tombola, and a 'PancakeTossing' Competition, but the most eye-catching stall was magnificent 'Candy Cart'


The kitchen was kept busy supplying teas, coffee, cakes, pancakes of course and bacon buns.

Those who came thoroughly enjoyed themselves, and the prize winners went home well satisfied.


Next Event is a Jumble Sale on 25th March

The Motley Crew - well done everyone!
