IT WAS a flipping great morning in Tenby and Narberth on Tuesday when scores of contestants and large crowds of spectators enjoyed the towns’ pancake races.

Tenby’s event was in aid of the town’s RNLI, with the charity’s mascot, Stormy Stan, on hand to greet children and ensure fair play in the Tenby lifeboat crew’s race.

The race in Tudor Square featured a 60 metre dash while tossing a pancake, and saw 38 entries across the categories, who were started on their way by Tenby's deputy mayor, Councillor Sue Lane.

Winner of the race for five and unders was Ollie Toy; with Emily Walters coming home first in the six to eight category and Melissa Drinkwater triumphing in the nine-12 section.

The men’s race saw Daniel Evans crossing the line ahead of his challengers, while Ieuan Williams was first home in the crew race.

The morning raised £114 for Tenby RNLI funds.

The fundraising day was concluded with a two-course pancake dinner at the Fourcroft Hotel, also in aid of the RNLI.

In Narberth, children and adults raced up Church Street with their frying plans in a fun morning outside the town’s museum.

The event was organised by Mary Jones and the staff and friends of Narberth Museum.

Town Crier Ceri Barnes started the races and medals were presented by the mayor, Councillor Elizabeth Rogers.

Marshalls were Rotarians from the Narberth and Whitland Rotary Club.

After the races, the children proudly displayed their medals and sampled the pancakes in the museum.
