  • Description

    As well as being Saint David' day, today is Shrove Tuesday; when, in a quiet English village a famous sporting event takes place every year -- the Shrove Tuesday Pancake Race.

    Fourteen women of the village, all in aprons and scarves, each must toss her pancake twice during the four-hundred yard dash to the church gate.

    The traditional kiss from the verger for the winner, eighteen-year-old Carol Vorley and a big electric frying pan from a representative of Olney's competitors in America.
