THE final preparations are underway ahead of Dursley’s popular pancake race, which takes place today at noon. 

The event, which is staged annually on Shrove Tuesday, will once again be organised by Dursley Town Council.

It’s not too late to get involved – organisers are still on the lookout for entrants.

The event has become a much-loved part of the Dursley calendar and involves participants, many of them in fancy dress, flipping pancakes whilst running up Parsonage Street.

If you would like to get involved in this year’s race, visit: or call 01453 547758.

All proceeds will go towards Festive Dursley.
