Pancake Racing 2014
DONT FORGET TO CLICK ON EACH PHOTO FOR A LARGER PICTURE
Once more the handmade Pancakes were ready
The whole of Hollingbourne School, Mums and Dads, Grannies and Grandad's, WI Members and friends were here for the races.
Mary Henderson started every race with instructions -" toss the pancake at each chair on the way"
Most of the children took no notice however and just ran as fast as they could.
Alan Williams collated the winners on a scoreboard and hereby apologises for any discrepancies and mis-spellings in the names -
The first winner was Ryan Bibbins
Next Jack Bryce
speedy competitors and lots of onlookers.
The cheering was loud for these runners
Pancakes in mid air
An energetic start to this race - looked like the Olympics
Hugo Chaussy pretending he wasn't really there
Juliet de Banzie
Mrs Tong was a winner for the first time
The Men's race became a little confused
Daddy Bibbins came out in front
The School Cook Mrs Payne was a delighted winner
The Wi Race was won (once More) by a Lenham Member!
The WI Ladies winner was from LENHAM!
Val Williams ( in black)and Sadie Curtis (in Red and black) were out to win this grudge race
and at the line it was Val Williams who crossed first with a grin on her face.
Rita Moon looking on also smiled -after all, it was only a Walking Race!
A thoroughly enjoyable afternoon, with refreshments available in the Pavilion
Thanks to all the helpers ( who Made the Pancakes, held the winning ribbon, gave out and collected the pans, gave out the eggs, awarded the rosettes, made the tea, washed up, cleaned the floor etc.etc. )
SEE YOU NEXT YEAR.
