The wonders of Piazza Italia have only just finished and we are now looking forward to Horsham’s 10th Annual Pancake Races on Tuesday (April 10). Owing to bad weather, the event was set back from Shrove Tuesday, but has turned into a blessing in disguise, as we still have it to look forward to – a real bonus for the spring school holidays! Some 30 Teams will compete in the Carfax between Noon and 2pm for a series of Trophies, with the overall winners receiving the coveted Sainsbury’s Cup.
Event organisers sent “huge thanks” to Ringway/Eurovia for the creation of the Race Track, Spirit fm for their sponsorship, and Sainsburys for the supply of pancakes, lemons and sugar: “There will also be about 6 mascots, including last year’s winner ‘Buster’ the search Dog and his mate ‘Woody’ competing in the Giant Egg and Spoon Race. Race music will be provided by DJ Andy with the race commentaries being given by none other than… that’s a surprise!”
Those who are not in a team are invited to visit the Carfax on Tuesday and join in the fun between noon and 2pm. Visitors are reminded to bring the kids for a ‘flippin’ fantastic’ time.
Horsham‘s 10th annual Pancake Races are organised once again by the Rotary Club of Horsham, with support from Horsham District Council. All proceeds will go to charity, with the charity chosen by the winning team and the most nominated charity across all teams receiving a third of the prize money each. The remaining third will be won by the best Charity Team in the races.
Whilst in Horsham, why not get the kids to enter the Great Easter Bunny Hunt which is taking place in 25 Horsham Shops until Sunday April 15? Children under 13 can win cash prizes of up to £40, as well as small goodies, as they follow the trail. Entry Forms are available in participating shops, in last week’s local newspapers or downloadable from a variety of Horsham Facebook and websites. The best shop to start the Trail at is probably Toy Barnhaus in Swan Walk. The Bunny Hunt is also organised by Horsham Rotary Club. Profits from both events go to help needy families in the local community.
