Every year at Camphill Blair Drummond, we come together as a community to celebrate Pancake Day in the traditional manner. We celebrate by holding pancake races up and down the gallery, with staff, residents and volunteers all participating, and then we all eat lots of yummy pancakes to complete the festivities.
Each House and the Day Service made lots of pancakes, and we all met in the afternoon in the gallery to start the Shrove Tuesday celebrations. The pancakes had to be extra thick as they spent a lot of time on the floor! Greg, our Woodwork Workshop Leader, announced all the races on a microphone, everyone was cheering and there was a really fantastic atmosphere!
We asked a few members of our community what they liked best about Pancake Day:
“I liked running and tossing pancakes” Alan, Day Student
“I enjoyed running backwards and with the residents” Marc, Support Worker
“I had chocolate pancake and blackcurrant juice, it was great” Ellen, Day Student”
Pancake Day is one of our favourite festivals – it was so much fun!

- “I have been very lucky to see the new workshops and houses become a reality. It has been talked about for a long time and it is great to see it happen. There has been quite a bit of upheaval along the way and the residents have coped with it brilliantly. However it has all been worthwhile and you just have to pop into Sycamore or Garden House to see that the residents think so too.” (Irene McLaren, Amber House Leader)
