ADD UPDATE, 29 May 2018: Would you and your family and friends like to be official Guinness world record breakers? If so, now is your chance! Come and support our campaign and be part of an official attempt to break the Guinness world record for the largest gathering of people dressed as trees (currently 1,000 people!). The purpose of the event is to have fun – and to draw attention to the terminal threat posed to our seven ancient woodlands by Eastleigh’s Local Plan (click on map here).
When: Saturday 7 July 2018 – 1.30pm to 3.00pm
Where: Stoke Park Junior School, Underwood Road, Bishopstoke, Hampshire, SO50 6GR
Dress according to Guinness guidelines: brown trousers, green top and headdress with branches and leaves on it (these can be fake or the real thing) – see picture above. Alternatively, design your own head-to-toe tree costume. This will need to be pre-agreed a few weeks in advance by Guinness, so please contact the organisers direct (see contact details below).
Bring as many people dressed up with you as you can! All branches of your family and neighbourhood welcome, whatever age! This will be a truly memorable, and hopefully historic, event!
The current world record of 1,000 ‘trees’ is held by the people of Mumbai, India. Can the people of South Hampshire do better? Surely! Root for our trees and join us.
PLEASE SPREAD THE WORD HOWEVER YOU KNOW HOW!
