Pancake Race Entry & Sponsorship Form 2020

Pancake Race Entry & Sponsorship Form 2020

Dursley's annual Pancake Race is held on Shrove Tuesday each year. The race is traditionally held in Parsonage Street at 12 noon. Depending on the number of runners who have entered, "heats" are held with the fastest runners qualifying for the grand final.

In February 2010, Dursley Town Council resolved to resurrect the annual Pancake Race, and to provide a trophy for the winner.

Each year a local charity benefits from the entry fees and any other monies raised during the event. More »

The 2020 race will be held on 25th February. All proceeds will go towards Festive Dursley.

It's not too late to enter!

Dursley Town Council is calling on residents, passionate about their community to stand in the local elections in 2020. The election will take place on the 7th May 2020.

What do councillors do?

Councillors are the champions of their community and give residents a voice on the decisions the council makes. Becoming a councillor will allow you to make a real difference in your community by engaging with residents, local groups and businesses to find out their needs; making decisions on which services and projects the council should take forward; and getting involved locally to ensure the services are meeting your community's needs.

How long does it take?

The National Association of Local Councils (NALC) Local Councillor Census Survey found that councillors put aside, on average, three hours a week for council work. This often includes attending meetings, engaging with residents and speaking on behalf of the council to other bodies.

Can I stand?

There are only a few rules to stand for election. You must be:

• A British citizen, or a citizen of the Commonwealth, or the European Union

• 18 years of age or older

• Live in an area that is served by a local council

How can I get involved?
