Flippin' good fun in store in Warwick

A PAN-tastic time is lined up for Warwick youngsters.

Warwick Rotary Club’s annual pancake races are set to take over the town on Tuesday February 28 – a week after Shrove Tuesday due to the schools’ half-term.

And children from nine local primary schools are set to battle it out around Market Square, cheered on by their parents, classmates and spectators from 1.30pm.

The grown-ups will also be invited to join in. Local businesses can sign up a team of four for £10 and prizes will be given to the winning team.

This year’s event is again supported by Tesco, providing the prizes, The Globe supplying hot pancakes, while local pubs and coffee shops can provide warm drinks.

A trophy will be awarded to each winning team.

Rotary club organiser Jackie Crampton said: “This is a nice way to keep a tradition alive and we are hoping for some fine spring weather on the day. Warwick Rotarians are out in force to marshall the event and this is one of the events we arrange for the local community.”
