Cheered on by staff, parents and grandparents, the three and four-year-olds raced up and down the playground carrying toy saucepans containing miniature pancakes cooked up by Ladybird committee member Karen Perrem, before being presented with Olympic-style gold medals and sweets.

Nursery manager Vanessa Harris said the youngsters, who also sang pancake-themed songs and tucked in to pancakes with blueberries, strawberries at snack time, looked forward to the event and enjoyed taking part.

She added: 'It is also really nice for the parents to come along and watch their children, it's a great British tradition and it raises some much-needed funds for Ladybird at the same time.'
