Four world record attempts at Telford funday

They're taking them on today

A fun day's being held in Telford today that's hosting four world record attempts.

Organised by the Hands Around the Wrekin group, they include the largest Christmas cracker pulling chain and most 'selfies' taken in one place. There's also attempts for the most people wearing a paper hat and largest collection of people doing the 'hokey cokey' around the Wrekin.


It's at the Buckatree Hall Hotel and is organised by the Hands Around the Wrekin Group.

At the moment the record for the largest cracker pulling chain stands at about 750 people, the record for the most people wearing a paper hat is about 3,500 people and the current record for the most number of people doing the hokey cokey is 7,384.

The record attempt for taking the most number of selfies has never been done before and is being put on in conjunction with The Georgia Williams Trust.

One of the wishes on the Wellington teenager’s bucket list is to break a world record, which others are now trying to complete on her behalf.
