Some people can’t wait for Pancake Tuesday to come around, and want their pancakes early. Members of the Parish of Whaley Bridge youth club, ‘Lost Prophets’, came into that category. Their monthly meeting in Holy Trinity church fell ahead of Shrove Tuesday (4 March), so they had time for a good practice at cooking pancakes. Maybe a few mums will be surprised by a son’s or daughter’s offer to man the frying pan when the real day came!
Noah Shelmerdine, at 11, one of the youngest members of Lost Prophets, was one of the kitchen stars. He showed a lot of confidence, especially in tossing his pancakes without dropping one.
Dean Thompson, 17, an assistant leader at the club, manned the main frying pan as he made pancake after pancake for appreciative members, including Neve Robinson and Danielle Byatte, both 15.
Club leader Sue Mellor said: “It was all a bit of fun, but with a serious message that cooking can be easier than you think.”
- The club received a small donation from the Whaley Bridge Rose Queen Festival community fund.
- Lost Prophets, for young people of ten years and upwards, meets in Holy Trinity church on the third Thursday each month. Contact: Sue Mellor on 01663 732 006.
