Pictures and video: rain doesn’t dampen racers’ spirits


Dursley Town Council staged the annual Pancake Races on Shrove Tuesday, attracting dozens of competitors despite the rain.

Dursley Mayor, Cllr Alex Stennett told Stroud Times: “It’s the first time I’ve adjudicated this – we revived the tradition in 2010, and Covid stopped us for a bit, but we’re back in full force now.”
