TEAMS of pancake enthusiasts headed to St Albans city centre on Tuesday for this year's hotly-contested Pancake Day Race.

Twenty teams picked up their frying pans for the annual Market Place race and Mayor of St Albans Cllr Bert Pawle presented the first prize of a pan to Billy's Bar and Restaurant from Harpenden.

Last year's winners, the district council's planning department, thought they'd won for the third year running but were disqualified at the last minute for not stopping to flip their Claude's Creperie pancake.

A semi-finalist team from the Herts Partnership NHS Foundation Trust wore special t-shirts for the occasion, reminding spectators of the Time for Change Campaign which aims to bring an end to mental health discrimination.

McDougalls home baking brand sponsored the event and shared recipes, topping ideas and coupons with the cheering spectators.

Recently we, as a family (minus two of the kids), visited The Lodge RSPB reserve in Sandy, Bedfordshire. I had never been before, which is perhaps amiss of me as a birdwatcher as it is the headquarters of the Royal Society for the Protection of Birds or RSPB and only 45 minutes drive from home.
