Shrove Tuesday only means one thing here at St Wilfrid’s… pancake racing!

Our annual Pancake Race took place on the 25th February, with 14 teams braving the cold and windy weather – it was almost a flip and slide, but luckily the rain held off.

We would like to say a massive thank you to Greg Draven for delivering some brilliantly witty commentary to the afternoon, to the Mayor of Eastbourne, Steve Wallis, for coming to support all of the teams, and also to the Birchwood Group for sponsoring the event.

The afternoon wouldn’t have been able to go ahead without all of our competing teams, so a special thank you goes out to:

  • Metro Bank
  • Birchwood Group's Holy Crepe and Fantastic Flippers teams
  • NHS BSA
  • Breeze Associates
  • Lansdowne Hotel
  • Eastbourne Academy
  • Ansvar Insurance
  • QualitySolicitors Barwells
  • PRG Ltd
  • Caffyns Volkswagen
  • AFH Payroll
  • Town Property

You were all great sports and all winners in our eyes, but the official third, second and first winners were Metro Bank and both Birchwood Group teams, with their ‘Fantastic Flippers’ team coming a flipping fantastic first place.

You can see a few photos from the event below, and once you have finished reading this blog why not head over to the Eastbourne Herald website to view some of their photos too - https://www.eastbourneherald.co.uk/news/people/eastbournes-pancake-race-2020-pictures-1891010
