Shoppers were treated to a weekend of food at the new Tesco Extra store.

Pancake Day at TescoPancake Day at Tesco

Tesco Wisbech, on Cromwell Road, hosted a farmers market offering customers locally produced food from a variety of local suppliers, including Elgood’s Brewery, Anglia Free Range Eggs and Musk’s Sausages.

Alongside the local produce on offer, families had the opportunity to decorate and taste sweet and savoury pancakes in time for Pancake Day, whilst watching performances from the Peterborough Morris Dancers.

Store Manager Kevin Chestnutt said: “We have had some great events in store since we first opened and the feedback from customers about these events and the stores services has been very positive so we are delighted we can continue with the free fun in store.”

“It was great to be able to offer our young shoppers the chance to perfect their pancake tossing skills and stock up on fresh fillings before the big day. We hope that everyone enjoyed the day as much as we all did.”
