Rev. Sarah Hayes Vicar of St. Marys in Horsell for over two years kindly devoted her time to give us an inspirational speech on the importance of Shrove Tuesday and how we can get involved. She told us that many people give up alcohol and food in lent to understand what Jesus went through for 40 days. She went onto inform us where the use of pancakes came from. A long time ago people used up their spare flour, butter, eggs and fatty substances to make pancakes before they fasted for lent. On Sundays they were allowed to eat because they were religious days. After the Vicar left we moved onto making pancakes, at first our pancakes weren’t great but after a few attempts we were able to master them. We all thoroughly enjoyed making pancakes and we were grateful for the Vicar’s attendance at our meeting.
