In pictures: Pancake fun and games on Cambourne cricket ground





It was bring-your-own-pan day last Sunday (February 19) as Cambourne-based charity CamCare UK organised a pancake race ahead of Shrove Tuesday – also known as Pancake Day of course – which is observed the day before Ash Wednesday.

Children and their parents brought their own pans and participated in the race by flipping pancakes across the cricket ground in Cambourne.
