More than 100 people lined the High Street for the annual pancake-flipping run, but it seems to be ‘easy peasy lemon squeezy’ for the team at CHQ Arcitects who bagged first place for the fourth year in a row.

As well as two teams from the practice there were plenty more from the town including a clutch from retail display company Display Plan and a crew from The White Lion pub.

Baldock Town Partnership director Fraser Valentine said: “We had lots of people in the town centre and 11 teams taking part.

“It was a fantastic event which raised £200 for the Baldock Rotary Club.”
