Shrove Tuesday

David Harcoan and Fred Holm from Rushworth tuck into some hot pancakes covered in Nutella, banana and ice-cream.

Today, being Shrove Tuesday or Pancake Day as it often known as, provided the guys from the Tatura Men’s Shed with an excuse to show off their culinary (or lack there-of) skills.

Members and visitors were divided into groups of three with each group having to cook their own pancakes from a simple recipe provided.

Alex Carter and Tony Boccabella got the ball rolling with the first batch, with Rushworth visitor David Harcoan eagerly tucking into three of the pancakes.

Shrove Tuesday is the day before Ash Wednesday, the first day of Lent. It is celebrated throughout the world by the cooking and eating of pancakes - a last feast before the fasting and self-denial of Lent.
