Memory Lane Co-op pancake race 1986

There is lots on concentration on the faces of these youngsters who are about to set off in a pancake race.

This picture is one from our own archives and was taken in 1986 outside the Co-op in Ripley.

We are wondering if the race saw the youngsters flip their pancakes around the block – running around the store and through the car park?

If you recognise anyone on the picture, then get in touch as we’d love to hear from you.

Perhaps you know the names of the children or the man starting the race with his hat?
