Inter - Livery Pancake Race 2022

1st March 2022

The eighteenth and ever-popular Inter-Livery Pancake Race was sadly unable to take place on Shrove Tuesday due to the torrential rain resulting in the course being deemed unsafe.
Any disappointment was however short lived when the Poulters Company announced that the luncheon which comprised of a mug of delicious hot soup together with a main course and of course a pancake to follow would be brought forward.
The juicy lemons contributed by the Fruiterers Company and served with the pancakes were most generously donated by Spitalfields Market Tenants’ Association.
Following lunch, a parade of enthusiastic participants in fancy dress took place where under the direction of Fruiterers’ Team Manager Liveryman Sue Handy and supported by Past Master Peter Cooper together with Upper Warden Matt Hancock and Liveryman Rupert Hargreaves our entry was Liveryman Claire Donkin dressed as a delicious pineapple designed by Pauline Hanson, former theatre designer at Eton College.
