Shrove Tuesday Pancake Races

We held our seventh annual Pancake Races on Shrove Tuesday (28th February). The races were held on the Lance Memorial playing field and started at 1:30pm.
 The event opened with W.I’s ladies walking race and was won by Mary Henderson.
 And then came the running race, which was won by Jane Orgill (Pictured below)
 These were quickly followed by the pre and primary school children’s races.
 There was a separate race for each year, concluding with the teachers, mums and then the dads.
 Pictured below is Mrs. Nurden who is a teacher at the school.
In total there were 22 pancake races. Rosettes were presented to all the winners. Hot cross buns and drinks were served in the Cardwell Pavilion.
 The entire event was recorded by Meridian News...
But unfortunately we hardly had a mention in the evening news, just a brief reference to Hollingbourne and a 10 second video clip!

Art Techniques Presentation by Michelle Diprose

On Tuesday evening the W I were treated to a presentation by Michelle Diprose. Michelle is an independent freelance artist/illustrator and photographer who lives in Hollingbourne.
During the evening we were shown to some of her wonderful work and to the techniques she employs.
 Michelle specialises in painting portraits, both animal and human, but also enjoys photographing wildlife and seascape scenes.
Towards the end of the evening her audience was asked to participate by drawing random shapes on a large sheet of paper. Michelle would then, using her artistic skills, transform these into meaningful pictures.

All had an enjoyable evening.
