More than two hundred volunteers have knitted over a thousand squares to make a 400-metre long scarf for a submarine at a museum in Hampshire.
The community project involved knitters from the Women’s Institute, local churches, sheltered housing schemes and social knitting groups.
The giant scarf wrapped around HMS Alliance will be displayed for a few days, if the weather is good. In the New Year it will displayed in the Learning Centre at the Royal Navy Submarine Museum in Gosport.
A woman's magazine will attempt to set a new Guinness World Record for the longest string of knitted bunting on Monday 8 July in Tunbridge Wells.
More than 900 readers from all over the world including have been knitting furiously to help the quest, creating more than 3.2km of bunting.
For it to be verified as a Guinness World Record, the bunting needs to be hung. The bunting will be hung at Tunbridge Wells based book publisher and distributor Search Press and can be viewed by the public between 2pm and 5pm.
Hundreds, perhaps thousands of runners from the south will join the 37,000 starters in Sunday's London Marathon. Some are dedicated athletes, others are doing it for fun. And Susie Hewer from Sussex will certainly get noticed as Tom Savvides explains.
