The heat is on for the annual Ilkley Rotary Shrove Tuesday Pancake Races next month.

Organiser Ilkley Rotary Club is mustering entries from schoolchildren and hopes to stage several races for adults, including a grand final. They will take place on The Grove from 10.45am to 1.15pm on February 12. The street will be closed to traffic.

There are expected to be more than 20 children’s races and youngsters from Ilkley and the surrounding areas hoping to take part must arrange their entry through their school.
