World record attempt for local school

Gosport's Bay House School will be going for gold this Monday as they aim to smash a Guinness World Record.

With the help of their local MP, Caroline Dinenage, the school will attempt to beat the record for the Largest Human Olympic Rings. They're aiming to surpass the current record of 1900 with at least 500 more people.

The event, to be held this Monday 30th April from 1pm on the school field, is part of their wider Olympic celebrations. It will promote the Olympic values of friendship, respect and excellence, with each child donating £1 to their Malawi charity project to take part.

Local MP Caroline Dinenage, who will be lending her support on Monday, said:

"I'm delighted to be able to play a part in this fantastic world record attempt. It just goes to show that the Olympics, and the values they uphold, are a cause for celebration throughout the nation and our local area. I have no doubt that Bay House will have some serious celebrating of their own to do when they pull off this world record bid!"

The Gosport MP, who worked hard to ensure that the Olympic Torch would come to local area, will also be supporting many other local events in the build up to its arrival on the 15th July 2012.
