St James’ Church in Winscombe invited people in to race around the hall with their pancakes.

Participants showed off their pancake-flipping skills as they raced to the finish line at the hall in Woodborough Road.

Families in Blagdon also lined up ready to compete against their peers in the friendly contest at the village club.

After burning off some energy in the races, families tucked into pancakes served up by volunteers.
