What you have with yours wasn’t on the agenda as a popular tradition returned to Swaffham.

Dozens of schoolchildren took part in pancake races at the town’s Assembly Rooms today as the annual event found its way back from Covid restrictions.

The races are traditionally organised by members of the town’s Lions club, but could not take place last year because of the lockdown rules which were in place at the time.

And staff shortages meant that Sacred Heart School, who claimed the event’s Frying Pan trophy in 2020, could not take part this time around.

But eight teams, representing the Nicholas Hamond Academy and the Swaffham CE Primary Academy respectively, did take part with the latter coming out on top after a best of three leg final.

Club president Tony Lakey presented the trophy to the winning team.
