Do you remember this last year? Bridgend beat mighty New
York to take their world record for the most number of elves
gathered in one place. The record stood at 610 but Bridgend
smashed it to record a new record of 794.
And this year they're trying to go one better. Or to be more
precise 206 better as they attempt to break the 1000 elves
The attempt will take place on Saturday 10 December on Adare Steet
in Bridgend town centre. Organisers will provide the hat, you
provide the red or green jumper.
It's been a good week for the county of Bridgend.
Last Saturday saw them take on New York as they attempted to beat
their World Record for
the largest gathering of elves. The record stood
at 610 elves but the people of Bridgend smashed that record as 794
people, sorry I mean elves, gathered on Adare Street.
Then just yesterday it was announced that the star of
Porthcawl Grand Pavilion's annual pantomime, Dave the
Cow, had been voted the best panto cow in the
UK. Speaking after his win Dave said "I'm
udderley mooooved by this accolade and it was a great competion to
win as the steaks were so high"
If you want to catch Dave in action then Jack and the Beanstalk is
running at the Grand Pavilion until 2 January
Bridgend's Alternative Food Festival held last
month? It promised all the usual smells, stalls and stands of
conventional food festivals as well as slightly less conventional
exhibits. Amongst these was a 10ft cauliflower sheep.
Unfortunately, the building of the sheep didn't quite
go to plan. Take a look at this great video.
Not to be put off, the organisers of Bridgend's crazy events are
back with their Christmas offering, the Elfsteddfod. They
don't do things lightly as they take on the might of New York City
in a bid to smash the world record for the largest number of elves
gathered in one place at one time. The American city
currently holds the record with 607 elves. So go along to
Bridgend town centre on 11 December to be part of it
