Pancakes flipping again in Warwick

Leamington Editorial 2nd Mar, 2022   0

PANCAKES were once again flipping in Warwick.

Market Place was full to bursting on Tuesday lunchtime as young and old competed in the annual Rotary Club of Warwick-organised pancake races, which returned after a two year Covid-enforced break.

First to race were Warwick Racecourse against Happy Puccia, then Warwick Castle ran against The Globe Hotel.

In a tense final The Globe just pipped newcomers Happy Puccia to the finish line.

Six schools entered no less than 24 teams.

Youngsters from Year 2 at Newburgh and Year 6 at Coten End Ambassadors won their respective finals.

Rotary president Paul Jaspal and Warwick mayor Richard Edgington presented the winners with their prizes, which were donated by Tesco and included pancake ingredients and an Easter Egg.

Mr Jaspal said: “We were delighted that the day turned out so well. It was really buzzing with so much energy from all the children.

“This is one of the events we arrange for the local community, and we are delighted that local businesses have joined in this year.”
