Join South Norfolk's World Record attempt

To celebrate the UK's first Norfolk Day, South Norfolk Council are giving people the chance to get into the Guinness Book of Records.

The Council is inviting people to join them at the Broads Authority’s Totally Broads Day at Whitlingham on 27 July to attempt to break the world record for the largest gathering of people dressed as hares.

South Norfolk Council’s Deputy Leader Michael Edney said:

“We hope as many people as possible can join us on the first Norfolk Day and help us get into the record books. It’s going to be a fantastic day of celebration across the county and we are proud to be part of it. There are so many things that make South Norfolk a wonderful place to live and visit, this is a great chance for us to celebrate them in the Broads National Park.”

The Broads Authority will be running plenty of activities between 11am and 3pm for all ages to enjoy including trails, treasure hunts, face painting, arts and crafts. From 1-2pm the Council will be attempting the world record outside the visitor centre.

To join in and be a record breaker, visitors will need to wear any rabbit or hare ears, a tail and 12 whiskers, which can be painted on.

Councillor Edney added: “Come along, have a great day and get into the record books. You’ll also be able to find out all about our brand new virtual reality heritage trails in Wymondham, which start at Henry, our GoGo Hare on the Market Place.”
