Happy New Year!

Happy New Year from everyone on the Olney Pancake Race Committee. Preparations for the 2015 Pancake Race, which will take place on Tuesday 17th February, are in full swing.  Runner entry forms will be available from the Natwest Branch on Olney High Street from 9th January.

Runners, did you collect your prize bag?

Runners, did you remember to collect your prize bag from the Church after the race? We still have 9 bags left over. The prize bag is a Francis Jackson Bag containing toiletries donated by Cox & Robinson. Each bag contains an envelope containing a £10 note, a voucher from Olney Healthcare, a voucher from MuchaDo and some envelopes contain other valuable vouchers which were put in randomly.

So well worth collecting!!

Please email David Phillipson fabianstedman@googlemail.com to arrange collection.
