Pancake Quiz

16 Feb 2021, 9 p.m.

Eight teams gathered to battle with questions from the Quiz master on the evening of Shrove Tuesday. We shared our favourite pancake toppings, finished our pancakes and then gave our brain some exercise! Did you know that the record number of pancake tosses in a minute is 140? and the diameter of the biggest pancake ever made was 15.1 metres? Did you know that the word Lent is linked to a german word which means 'late springtime' and  that Wordsworth called the daffodil , the 'Lenten Lily'? And that the word 'shrove' comes from 'shrive' and means absolve or turn? 

Congratulations to Jenny, our worthy winner who had spent all the previous day swotting! Well done everybody!
