A DAY dedicated to pancakes – what could be better?
While there is a serious message underlying Shrove Tuesday, better known as “pancake Tuesday to many”, St Peter’s in Leeton will once again be making a fun event out of the occasion.
The traditional pancake relay will have people of all ages battling it out for supremacy with the winners to have their names forever etched on the pan trophy.
To be held on February 13 at 7.30pm, the relay will be followed by a pancake supper and all the fun is just a gold coin donation away. All residents are invited to take part.
The following day is Ash Wednesday, which marks the beginning of Lent. In recent years Father Robert Murphy has started a new tradition called “Ashes to Go”.
For those who can’t make Ash Wednesday services he will bestow the ashes on any residents wishing to receive them in the main street area.
St Peter’s will have three services at the church throughout the day.
The St Peter’s Anglicare Op Shop has also been a hive of activity, so much so that more volunteers are needed to lend a hand.
Helping out at the store is the perfect way to be involved in the community, according to volunteer Lorraine Mudge.
“I love talking to people and meeting new people,” she said.
“It’s socialising and good fun.
“We are just so light on, we need more people.”
Contact the op shop for more information or pop in to see what it’s all about.
