Getting battered! 

Retail staff flip out over pancake day
 
It looked like everyone in the town centre had gone flipping mad this morning, but it was all in good fun for pancake day.

Retail staff from shops along Canal Walk joined the inSwindon team to participate in a pancake race – and although it looked like a fix, inSwindon managed to toss their way to victory.

Bernie Maguire, Operational Director of inSwindon, crossed the line yards ahead of staff from Phones4U and Republic, proudly admitting that a significant age gap made no difference!

Mark Ross, Chief Executive of inSwindon, said: “It's great to see everyone getting involved, and especially for the shops along Canal Walk.

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

And this is just the beginning, with challenges continuing throughout the year – starting with an egg and spoon race at Easter!
