Pancake Day adds traditional touch

HEAT up the frypan and get the egg flippers ready because today is Pancake Day.

President of the Warwick Mother's Union Bev Spence said while Shrove Tuesday was shrouded in tradition - it was also a day of fun and games.

"Traditionally, Pancake Day was the last day to use up all the eggs, butter, cream and fat by cooking pancakes before the beginning of Lent," she said.

She said to honour the tradition, St Mark's Anglican Church would be "cooking up a storm today", but not all of the pancakes would end up in the stomachs of participants.

"We'll have pancake tossing and races and anyone can come along," she said.

Mrs Spence explained it was just a gold coin donation to participate in the fun, and proceeds would go to the local school chaplaincy program.

Follow your nose to St Mark's Church from 9.30am to join in the fun and eat some tasty treats.
