PANCAKES were flipped left, right and centre as over 100 people piled through the doors of Sidbury Village Hall for the annual Pancake Day last Saturday.
Organised by members of Sidbury WI, in aid of FORCE and St Petroc's Community in Exeter, over �400 was made thanks to hungry Sidbury residents who ate nearly 200 pancakes.
Mary Tucker, treasurer of Sidbury WI, said: "It went very well. We think we must have made around 180 pancakes by the amount of milk we used.
"It was so busy people had to wait to sit down - I think it was as busy as it's ever been.
