Flipping victory for Bracknell Forest Standard
February 24, 2009
The Bracknell Forest Standard won a flipping grand victory this morning when it came top of the pancake race.
Sporty Team Standard grabbed the coveted title after a gruelling race, which involved running while flipping a pancake in a pan, against seven other equally determined teams.
Lucy Allen, Lorna Catling, Mike Pyle and Lewis Rudd made it to the final of the popular event in the town centre after battling againt the teams from Bracknell Regeneration Partnership (BRP) and department store Bentalls.
Onlookers appeared gripped as they watched the final round of the race, which saw Team Standard and the Bracknell Borough Council's own sporty quartet go head to head.
Victorious Team Standard received the grand trophy from Bracknell mayor councillor Bob Edger, who in good sporting spirit recognised Lucy, Lorna, Mike and Lewis' flipping talent.
The pancake race is organised to celebrate Shrove Tuesday and raise cash for charity.
