22 Feb

On a cool but clear February day, Master – accompanied by his ever-faithful Senior Warden – participate in the 19th Annual Inter-Livery Pancake Race, held at Guildhall Yard.

Those Members who follow Shrove Tuesday festivities closely (you know who you are!) may recall that the event was unfortunately cancelled last year at the last minute due to weather; a “slick event” being in this case very much one to avoid.

Despite a gallant and keenly-fought run, and a deft pancake flip or two, our Master eventually took leave of the competition, enjoying instead a conciliatory pancake with the Senior Warden, freshly prepared, sugared and richly doused in lemon juice and (we believe) chocolate sauce before enjoying a tasty lunch in the Guildhall Crypt.

Hats off (literally) to the Master for a very fine effort!
