Beverley Town Council is reminding people there is still time for tossers to come forward for their annual Pancake Race.
With just over two weeks left until the big event, the Town Council are wanting more teams to take part in this community event.
Taking place at 11.30AM on 3 March teams wishing to enter have until Tuesday 22 February to get their entries in.
While this is a new event for the town, it was something that used to occur some years ago.
The ‘Big Beverley Community Charity Pancake Race’ is being organised by the Town Council in partnership with the Rotary Club.
Commenting on the event, Liz Whitaker, current President of the Rotary Club of Beverley said ;
“I am delighted that we are running this event again in partnership with the Town Council. Teams will be competing for the Rosanne Randle Trophy.”
“This has been named after a Rotarian who introduced the idea of the event back to Beverley after visiting the legendary Olney Pancake Race.”
“There will also be prizes for the Best Dressed team and the best Junior Flipper. The event is being held on the Sunday before Shrove Tuesday.”
“We hope local residents will come to Wednesday Market to share in the fun. We also hope they support the teams in their races.”
