FLIPPIN heck! Active Trowbridge pasted the opposition to win four out of the town's five Pancake Day races on Shrove Tuesday (Feb 25).

Their team - Aaron Cockerill, 23, Sean Horobin, 22, Ed Cooke, 19, Craig Robbins, 18 and Stacy Curtis, 18, took the winners medals in the men's race, the women's race, the mixed relay and the men's relay.

In the first race, Aaron Cokerill romped home by a whisker from team-mate Sean Horobin to take first place after an initial false start by the nine entrants.

Aaron said: "The flipping went really well and there was no mistakes.

"It was the first time I've entered and I will be back next year to retain my crown."

In the women's race, Stacy Curtis breezed the opposition to win by a clear length from second-placed Flick Clifford, from the British Heart Foundation furniture store, who had won the race two years ago.

Stacy said: "It was good fun but I'm a bit out of breath. I paced it and then put in a final sprint to to the finish line."

The other entrant was Stacey Moore, 38, the BHF store manager, who brought along a team of volunteers and the BHF mascot, Mr Hearty, to compete in the races.

The Active Trowbridge team took first place in the mixed relay and the men's relay, from the BHF team.

The women's relay race was won by the BHF team, with Flick running the final leg to the finish line.

Second was the Goughs Solicitors team - Rochelle Graham, Natalie Kemp, Bernice Taylor and Natasha Miller - and third was a team comprising Jo Carp, of PhysioJo, Ali Wrigglesworth and Sue Morrison from Fitter You and personal trainer Lucy Sutton of First Love Yourself.

Town crier Trevor Heeks supervised the races and Trowbridge mayor Cllr David Cavill presented the medals.
