Well, the Shrove Tuesday weather was as unpredictable as it might well be for February, but it didn’t really affect the annual Pancake Races which were held as always in Fore Street. With Town Crier Trevor Heeks as MC, the various races were enjoyed by participants and spectators alike, with the lion’s share of the spoils going to members of Active Trowbridge. Teams from the local British Heart Foundation shop, Goughs Solicitors, and ladies fitness club Fit Her You and Physio Jo were also among the rankings, as were service users and carers from Care Choice in Church Walk. Participants were awarded medals and certificates by Town Mayor, Councillor David Cavill at the end of the proceedings.
The Town Council would as always like to thank members of Trowbridge Lions for lending their support as stewards, and the Neighbourhood Services team for its help in staging the event. (Shrove Tuesday 2021 is scheduled to fall during the February half-term week, so there’ll be races for the kids next year – we’ll keep you posted.)
