All eyes on Buckingham for a rather early pancake race!

The town crier welcomed all to the Buckingham Pancake Race this week.

The yearly event takes place outside St Peter and St Paul’s Church has been moved to an earlier date in the half term holidays so that more children could attend, but still attracted the good humoured rivalries of old too.

Sponsored by Buckingham Town Council the races were held on the green outside St Peter and St Paul Church and the event was opened by the Town Crier and Town Mayor, Cllr Andy Mahi.
