They also got to experiment with various toppings on their ready-made pancakes before writing about whether their recipes were a success or not.

Gedney Church End Primary School hosted a one-day Pancake Olympics as children competed against each other in house groups for pancake races and the event overall was won by Ouse House.

A more traditional Shrove Tuesday event took place in Pinchbeck where Lorna Webb hosted a coffee and pancake morning, with home-made bread and quiches made at The Duke of York pub, Gosberton Risegate.
