Flipping fun for pancake racers in Roughton
Drivers passing through Roughton enjoyed some roadside entertainment this afternoon as competitors young and old took part in the village's pancake races.
Armed with frying pans in all shapes and sizes the culinary athletes walked, ran and flipped their way down the race track outside the New Inn, as spectators and motorists on the busy A140 looked on.
Competitors of all ages enjoyed several races during the after school competition, organised by the village's Crazee Kidz youth club.
Richard Seaward helped arrange the afternoon of flipping fun, which he thought had been a great success.
He said: 'It's just a pleasant change to see the children and adults outside enjoying themselves on a cold winters evening.'

Proceeds from the sale of hotdogs and some non-flipped pancakes served up inside the pub went towards the youth club, which has been running since 2009. It now organises various events throughout the year for youngsters in and around Roughton.
As well as putting on activities such as the pancake races the club raises funds with its can and scrap metal collection scheme.
