Let batter commence! 

Swindon's biggest pancake race
 
It was Pancake Day with a difference in the town centre this morning.
No, it wasn’t a case of everyone going flipping mad, but, the ‘Biggest Pancake Race in Swindon’.

Business owners and retail staff from shops across the town joined the inSwindon team to participate in the event that was broadcast live on the BBC Big Screen by SwindonWebTV.

After two heats the final was eventually won by two presenters from 105.5 community radio who flipped their way to victory.

Simon Jackson, deputy CEO of inSwindon, said: “It's great to see everyone getting involved, and Wharf Green is the perfect space to do it in.

“The staff don't normally get to socialise with staff from other shops, so it was great fun for all!”
