Remember when from 25 years ago, start of the pancake race in Alnwick

Gazette reader Eileen Woodward contacted us about this picture in last week’s Gazette. Landlady at the Queen’s Head pub at the time, she is pictured in the long, dark coat next to Bellman Robert Porteous and barman Stephen Rae who is next to Sam Straughan.

They battled snow on the day to take part in the pancake race from the Hotspur Tower to the front of the Castle.

But she didn’t know who the team on the other side were. Can you help? Contact Helen Millichamp on 01665 602234 or email helen.millichamp@jpress.co.uk

If you have any other memories you’d like to share with our readers, email helen.millichamp@jpress.co.uk, call 01665 602234 or pop into the Gazette office at 32 Bondgate Without, Alnwick NE66 1PN.
