16th Inter-Livery Pancake Race 2020

25th February 2020

A great day out at the Worshipful Company of Poulters’ 2020 Inter-Livery Pancake Race!

With favourable weather the 2020 Inter-Livery Pancake Race and luncheon which follows is run in aid of the Lord Mayor’s Appeal and the Master Poulter’s Pelican Trust, was again a huge success.

This was the sixteenth time the race has taken place and the Fruiterers are proud to have supported the Poulters on each and every occasion.

Congratulations to the Fruiterers’ Team Manager, Liveryman Sue Handy for selecting a very enthusiastic group of participants and arranging for an extra special outfit in the guise of a Fruit Basket to be worn by Annette Bardsley in the Fancy Dress Race.

As our pictures show, fruit grower, Annette looked “Very Appealing” in her “Fruity Attire” and caught the eye of the judges to win second place in the “Fancy Dress competition.”

It must not be forgotten that for many years “New Spitalfields Market Tenants’ Association” have very kindly donated the Lemons to be squeezed on the pancakes for which the organisers are most grateful.

The Master, David Simmons together with Team Manager, Sue Handy would like to extend a “Big Thank You” to all those who participated in making this such an enjoyable day together with the record number of Fruiterers who with their partners came along and supported the “Fruiterers’ Team 2020”
