CHILDREN and adults across Swindon have been cooking up a treat to mark Pancake Day.
In Royal Wootton Bassett, the Rev Canon Thomas Woodhouse, hosted a Pancake Party to raise funds for the Mothers’ Union and the Rainbow Room at St Barth-olomew’s Primary School on behalf of the Ladies Guild. The Rainbow Room offers a designated area to help children who suffer from learning difficulties.
Mr Woodhouse said it was influential in helping children succeed.
Visitors were able to relax while members of the Mothers’ Union and Ladies’ Guild made pancakes for all.
Mr Woodhouse said: “It is a wonderful opportunity to invite people into my home and give Wootton Bassett a chance to spend time with their friends without the worry of work.”
Also having fun with pancakes were children from Busy Bees Nursery in Peatmoor. Youngsters aged between three and five had a fun-filled day, ending with a much-anticipated pancake race.
Lucy, who goes to the nursery, said: “I love Pancake Day because it’s fun.”
And Noah said: “Pancake day was the best day ever.”
