The Pancake Race around the Minster will be on Shrove Tuesday, 12 February at 11am. In its 16th year since its revival in 1998, it starts at 11am outside the main entrance to the minster. Competitors should report to the north porch by 10.30am to enrol, complete with frying pan and ready cooked pancake. There are trophies and prizes to be won.
All competitors have to do, is run round the minster, tossing their pancakes at the four corners of the church. Anyone can enter their respective categories — young or old, individuals, schools, groups, wheelchair users and their helpers, organisations, a team – all are welcome.
Entry forms are available in the minster or Church House (parish office), or from Anthony Oliver, MBE 01202 888703 or just turn up on the day and register.
