In North Marston, manager Eddie Parsley, of The Shop, looked on as North Marston School pupils set off on their pancake race on Shrove Tuesday. The race is organised by the shop each year along with an all-day pancake giveaway.
Children from North Marston’s Schorne Pre-School were also invited to take part in the races, followed by a tasting session of fresh pancakes.
