Bigjigs World Record Attempt
Stuck for things to do in the summer holidays? Do your kids love their wooden railways? Fancy seeing a Guinness World Record in the making? Well this could be for you. On 29th July Bigjigs are attempting to break the current world record of the longest wooden toy train track which currently stands at just over 1650 metres. They will be attempting to make it 2012 metres. The event will be taking place at The Historic Chatham Dockyard between 10am and 4pm.
Entry to watch the challenge is free of charge with spectators being able to sponsor a piece of track for £1. The money raised will be distributed equally between Demelza House and The Locomotive Restoration Fund, and you will receive a commemorative certificate. If you can't make the event yourself, you can still take part by donating at their just giving page and by adding your e mail you will receive a certificate.
If you want to find out more take a look at the Bigjigs facebook page,or follow them on twitter or pinterest.
I think my boys will be better off sponsoring a piece of track than breaking the record themselves.....
