Happy faces and delicious treats were a match made in heaven on Pancake Day.
Hundreds of people across North Somerset tucked into their pancakes on Tuesday for the annual Christian holiday.
Lemon and sugar drowned the simple yet yummy dessert dishes while others had a bit more fun with their pancakes.
Congresbury villagers held races at St Andrew’s Church, off Station Road, to celebrate Shrove Tuesday.
The event saw people flipping pancakes and racing towards the finish line.
Shrove Tuesday marks the day before the start of Lent where people fast and give up luxuries for 40 days and 40 nights.
The event traditionally sees people use up foods which they cannot eat over Lent.
