It was a chilly morning, but that didn’t stop the crowds coming to Fair Green to take part in and watch the pancake races. There were races for women, men and then 3 age groups of children. The final spectacular was the team event, with teams from the Diss Express, Cock Inn and Imps. The winner was the Express team, who will get their name inscribed on a wooden frying pan to be kept in the Cock Inn. The Express team generously donated their £35 prize back to go to our play equipment.
We had stalls selling pancakes, of course, as well as tea, coffee and cakes. All in all we raised £310, more or less, towards the upkeep of Fair Green.
