This month release your inner child and get your wellies on and frying pan out
In half term the Wildfowl and Wetland Trust hosts National Puddle Jumping Competitions at its nine centres. Marks are awarded for enthusiasm, style and size of splash. This one’s for kids only, but you could always host your own.
We all love Shrove Tuesday (9 February) so why not join your local race? The original pancake race was said to be in Olney, Bucks, where they’ve been racing since 1445. Now, the town holds many races, flipping competitions and prizes for best fillings.
