The call has gone out for volunteers to help in a world record attempt in Hampshire. Gosport's Discovery Centre is hoping to bring at least one thousand and one hundred people together on Saturday 15th August - to simultaneously balance a book on their heads and cover five metres either on foot, or for people with disabilities, in wheelchairs or mobility scooters.
The organisers say that would-be record breakers need to be in Walpole Park by 11.15am and bring a book of a minimum 23cm x 15cm (9in x 5.9in) and maximum 31cm x 23cm (12.2in x 9in). That's because the size of the book are very important to ensure the record is valid.
The current record for the most people balancing books on their heads is 998 - it was broken in Sydney, Australia in November 2012. For more information you can visit the Gosport Discovery Centre online.
Firefighters in Hampshire have made the world's biggest naan bread.
They aimed to book a break at least 3 metres by 1.2 metres.
An attempt to make the world's largest naan bread takes place in Hampshire later today. Visitors to Eastleigh Mela will be able to see the record breaking attempt.
The aim is to beat the world record whilst raising money for The Fire Fighters Charity, Water Wells Project and Hampshire Hurricanes.
The Eastleigh Mela will take place on Sunday 6 July 2014 (11am – 6pm) at Leigh Road Recreation Ground in Eastleigh. Every year, the Asian Welfare and Cultural Association coordinate a range of events to engage with the local community.
Firefighter will attempt to make the world's largest naan break in Hampsire tomorrow.
The aim is to cook a naan bread at least 3 metres by 1.2 metres. The current record measured 2.89 metres by 1 metre and weighed 9.5 kg (20lb 15oz).
An attempt to break a world record for the largest amount of people dancing on a promenade has failed. Only two hundred and fifty people turned up for the event at Broadstairs in Kent - that's down 600 from three years ago.
The event was staged to raise money for two Charities - the Queen Elizabeth and Queen Mother Special Babies Unit and the Alfie Gough Trust.
