Hatfield town centre had a flipping good time today, thanks to a pancake day celebration held near White Lion Square.
Local businesses and shoppers alike got competitive in the council’s pancake race and “flipathon”.
Adult and child duos were egged on from the sidelines as they raced with their frying pans down the arcade in pursuit of a £20 prize voucher.
Oliver Farr won the children’s race, and Bebo cafe’s employees JJ and Alex were victorious in the flipathon and the adult pancake race respectively.
Councillor Bernard Sarson, executive member for business, partnerships and public health, said: “I’d like to say a big thank you to all of the residents, visitors and businesses that took part in our Pancake Day competitions, it was great to see so many people gathered under the arcade in Hatfield despite the wet weather.
“This event kick-starts another busy year in the Hatfield town centre events calendar, with the annual Easter egg hunt beginning on Friday March 30, lasting for two weeks.
“If your child would like to take part, just pick up an activity card from White Lion House or participating town centre shops.”
