THERE will be some flipping fantastic fun to celebrate Shrove Tuesday.

Catering students from South Downs College will be cooking up a treat on Pancake Day in Waterlooville town centre.

Havant Borough Council usually holds a Pancake Day race in the shopping centre every Shrove Tuesday but that can not go ahead this year due to major re-paving work in the precinct.

Instead, the South Downs students have volunteered to raise money for local charities by cooking pancakes all day for shoppers and workers to buy.

The marquee will be in the town centre on February 21 from 10am to 4pm.

Funds raised will support the Mayor of Havant’s Charity Appeal which benefits The Rowan’s Hospice At Home Appeal and The Hampshire and Isle of Wight Air Ambulance as well as other good causes in the borough.
