The feast before the fast – we celebrate Shrove Tuesday in style

Home news

Traditionally the chance to use up all those naughty treats in the cupboard before the start of Lent, the catering team at Tall Trees will be using Shrove Tuesday as an opportunity to whip up some spectacular pancakes.

On Tuesday 12th February, they will be making pancakes and inviting residents to choose from a variety of toppings and fillings such as lemon, sugar, syrup, ice cream, cinnamon, fruit and chocolate before, most importantly, eating them.

Our Activity Coordinator Verity Tofts said: “We hope everyone taking part will mix their own batter and then have fun making up wonderful toppings to add to their cooked pancakes.”
