Sidmouth’s annual pancake day race will return to the seafront next week.

The Sid Valley Rotary have organised a flipping good event for Tuesday, February 18 on The Esplanade, opposite The Hotel Elizabeth.

Junior races will be held from 2.30pm until 3pm - entry is free but parental consent is required.

Senior team races will then take place between 3pm and 3.45pm - a team of four costs £20.

All the money raised from the day will be given to Balloons Charity which supports children, young people and their families before an expected death or following the death of someone close.
