Pancake Success 2018

This year’s pancake races were held on 13th February and this was the 13th year since we first held a race.  It wasn’t Friday but the weather was awful.  Wind chill just above freezing and a bitter wind blowing up the High Street.

We were supporting the Prostate Project in achieving the goal of £2M towards the new Urology Centre at RSCH.

Luckily Guildford’s pancake race enthusiasts are made of tough stuff and we had a fantastic turnout from all concerned; competitors, crowds, volunteers and mascots.  All this was reflected in a record amount raised of £731.

Spike Bees


In 2017, the honey was sold out before the bees in our two hives had finished making it!

We hope to have both early and late honey on sale again this year.

The early honey last year from Spring time flowers was light in colour, thin in viscosity and flowery sweet.  The later honey was darker in colour, possibly due to the abundance of heather, with a notably different flavour.

Don’t miss out -
