ScrapstoresUK are attempting to break the Guinness World Record for the longest line of bunting. We need your help!

The existing record is a tad under 3 miles, we are aiming to ensure our record smashes it by quite a margin so as to safeguard against anyone making an attempt while we are preparing for ours.

We have the support of Lichfield Scrapstore and Council and we plan to erect the bunting at our 2014 National Conference on 20th June along the route of the Innovation Centre and around the perimeter of the reservoir.

The local scrapstore Lichfield have some facilities and manpower to assist in the checking and assembling, but the more you can do beforehand, the better.

The flags don't all need to be fabric, they can be made of paper of fabric, however please make sure it will withstand the temperamental UK weather.

The Specific Guidelines for the longest line of bunting are:

  • A bunting line is a form of festive decorations made of fabric, or of plastic, paper or even cardboard in imitation of fabric, typically a string of colourful triangular flags. 
  • The record is based on the overall length of the line but the number of flags should also be given. 
  • Each flag must have the maximum length of 19 cm (7.48 in) across (the side where the flag is attached to the string). The length of the other two sides must be no shorter than 25 cm (9.84 in) but they can be longer.  A maximum of 5 cm (1.97 in) is allowed between each flag.  
  • Several smaller lengths of bunting line may be attached to one another but the above mentioned maximum distance of 5 cm must be observed. 
  • Witnesses must measure the dimensions of the flags and the distances in between to confirm that the line has been made to the Guinness World Records standard. 
  • The bunting line, once finished, must be strung up

Good luck and keep us informed of how you are getting on.
