Popular pancake races will return to the streets of Lowestoft next month, as organisers send out a call for teams to get involved.

After last year's event was postponed amid the continuing coronavirus crisis, Lowestoft’s annual Pancake Day race will return to the town centre on Tuesday, March 1.

Event organisers Lowestoft Vision – the Business Improvement District for Lowestoft which is managed by Suffolk Chamber of Commerce - will oversee Britain’s most easterly pancake races once more.

Last held two years ago, the popular mascot race was won by Access Ant before We’re Going To Batter You - the team from Norton Peskett Solicitors - were crowned as winners of the 2020 race.
