Jubilee record bid at Clumber

CLUMBER Park will be the venue for a Queen’s Diamond Jubilee world record attempt on 3rd and 4th June.

National Trust staff at the beauty spot are asking for help as they attempt to break the world record for the longest string of bunting.

The record is currently held by the Fairtrade Foundation in London, where a line of bunting measuring 3,427.94m was created.

To break that record, the Clumber Park team needs to string more than 20,000 pieces of bunting together.

Community groups including nursing homes and schools have been working with staff at the park to make more than 20,000 unique pieces of bunting.

And throughout next month there will be opportunities for visitors to make their own pieces at the Discovery and Exhibition Centre in the park.

People who would prefer to make their bunting at home can drop it off on their next visit, or send it in for the team to assemble.

All pieces must be provided before 3rd June so that a bunting maze can be assembled in the park’s events field in time for the Big Jubilee Lunch.

Prizes will be awarded for the best bunting in several categories.
