Pancake Day a great Success

Armed with frying pans and chefs’ hats, the Lowestoft Vision event took place outside Beales department store, with crowds lining the course to cheer on the runners.

The event kicked off with the mascot race, with Access Ant from Access Community Trust and Africa Alive’s Reggie the Lion progressing through to the final. They were also joined by Picture Studio’s Pixel Bear and Lowestoft Mascot Kipper who both progressed from heat two. But it was a battle once again between crowd favourite Reggie and Access Ant, with the Ant regaining his trophy from 2015.

The main event took place in five heats with teams of three competing in a relay race. Each team member had to run the course flipping their pancake three times at the half way mark, before handing their frying pan, pancake and hat over to a team mate.

Many of the teams struggled with the windy conditions and pancake flipping techniques, causing much entertainment for the crowd.

Lowestoft Flippers, the Marina Theatre, Sentinel Leisure Trust and Graphitas all made it through to the first semi-final. The second semi-final was made up from Lowestoft Journal, Wilko and the British Heart Foundation.

Both races were very close and competitive but it was Graphitas, Lowestoft Flippers, Wilko and The Journal who progressed through to the final.

Matthew Wade from Annatar and Steve O’Brien from The British Heart Foundation on London road north both use the service.
Matthew said “I’ve been using the service for around 2 years now, it’s so simple, I don’t even notice it’s done as they come and take the waste and then leave us with another empty bin, it’s great".
Steve explained that the British Heart Foundation and Annatar both share the one communal bin along with the RSPCA, which means it’s easier for them all.
Matthew also said “It’s a great service to the businesses and potentially saves me around £260 per year on waste collection costs”


Cardboard collection is on a Tuesday or Wednesday.
