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
This is New York City last December as they break the world record
for the largest gathering of Elves. Never one to shirk a
challenge, the market town of Bridgend is now taking on the Big
Apple in a bid to snatch the record from their grasp.
607 is the number to beat and on Saturday 11 December organisers
hope to attract enough Elves to the town to enter the record
books. Organisers will provide the hat, you provide the red
or green jumper.
As well as the world record attempt there will be loads of other
activities going on including arts and crafts, Christmas baking and
Elf opening of the Bridgend Christmas Market. See you there!
