Happy Pancake Day folks! Or, as it’s known in BvsG’s home town of Scarborough, Happy Skipping Day! Yes for us Shrove Tuesday isn’t just about eating far too many pancakes (Gluten free of course), it’s also the day of Scarborough’s annual traditional skipping festival where, after one or two pancake races between local businesses and the traditional ringing of the pancake bell, kids and adults alike head down to the seafront for a good old fashioned skip on the beach! No, honestly, we’re not just high on pancakes and lemon juice, the town of Scarborough really has spent the day grabbing their ropes and skipping like it’s 1927.
So whether you’re celebrating skipping day, pancake day or Shrove Tuesday we hope you’re having a great one! (It’s totally skipping day though, just so you know!)
