It's a two pancake race here

Pancake race

Trying to explain to Julie from France and Markus from Germany the ancient tradition of pancake racing was quite amusing. Given the soggy and bleak weather conditions, I could only admire the participants as they ran up and down in front of the Old Town Hall. As well as a "Roman Catholic priest" in full soutane, there were some brightly clad Grove House pancake flippers with the colour pink much in evidence.  Also good to see former mayor Alison Steer. Perhaps Gordon Brown should have proposed a new voting system based on pancake racing? - crepe flip-flops rather than the policy kind?
