Half-term got underway on Tuesday with Sid Valley Rotary Club’s annual event which saw scores of children take part in a 60 metre dash down The Esplanade, flipping tasty treats along the way.

In the business competition, Michelmore and WBW solicitors tried to end the winning run of Dukes, but were unable to stop the team from once again taking home the prestigious ‘silver pan’.

Malcolm Watkins, Sid Valley Rotary Club president, said: “I think it’s a great success and everyone has had a fantastic time. Some events that we hold are to raise money but this is having a bit of fun and having community spirt.

“Anything we make is the icing on the cake.”
