Ysgol Bryn Coch sweeps the boards at Mold Pancake Races

Flipping great fun

Dozens of children cheered on their teams in Daniel Owen Square, Mold, on Shrove Tuesday for the 10th annual pancake races. People of all ages competed against each other with 22 teams racing in relays, tossing their pancakes whilst running a length of the Square.

Teams taking part included Ysgol Glanrafon, Flintshire Disability Forum, Tesco, Lloyds, Specsavers, Pound Bakery  – but it was Ysgol Bryn Coch who came out on top in both the adults’ and children’s races with times of under a minute. The races are organised by Cittaslow Mold and Mold Town Council, with stewarding help from the Rotary Club of Mold and other volunteers.

Spavens Sweet Shop, King Street, Mold kindly donated the pancakes, as well as the prizes for both the winning adult and children’s teams.
