Blog: Pancake ban leaves us flippin' mad
Dean Best | 5 February 2008
Today (5 February) is Shrove Tuesday, an excuse for a pile of pancakes when you get home after work.
The recipe in the Best household always involves chocolate, in some form.
Alas, however, the omnipresent health and safety brigade has barred a section of England from marking the day.
A pancake race in North Yorkshire has been cancelled due to health and safety regulations, according to the BBC.
Organisers have blamed the amount of risk assessments that needed to be carried out before the event, in which children take part.
Decisions like this always provoke a resigned sigh. What danger can children do to themselves in a pancake race?
Surely, running around with a frying pan is safer than running around with every child’s current favourite accessory – a handgun.
