PEOPLE of all ages had a flipping good time at St Peter's Hall in Budleigh Salterton when pancakes were served for a special Shrove Tuesday meal.

Around 100 people enjoyed pancakes made by volunteers for an event in aid of the Church Mission Society which raised �258.

Alan Matlock, 79, of Cricket Field Lane, helped cook. He joked: "Everybody had a good time I think, although I couldn't quite gauge to what extent as I was in the kitchen cooking for most of the time."

The Church Mission Society is a religious voluntary society which helps people live in a mission lifestyle.
