There was fun and laughter in a Suffolk village this afternoon as the traditional pancake race took place.
Adults and children from the village took part in six races, with small cash prizes for those finishing in the top three, and Creme Eggs for everyone taking part.
The weather was perfect for the event, which first took place in 1982.
Sandra Exley, from Mendlesham Community Council, which organises the annual event, said: “It went ever so well.
“We had a good turnout of all ages.
