Guinness World Records

What have you started Nigel?

I am, or was also a Guinness World Record holder although you have a larger
share of a World Record title.

To explain, back in 1982, 4th September, to be precise, Lyn, our 2 girls, and I
were at Brands Hatch for the SE Region of the Camping and Caravanning
Club of GB’s ‘Feast of Lanterns’ and 8,659 of us joined together to set a
record for the world’s longest Conga.

At the time this was quite a feat, but on the 13th March 1988 at the Calle
Ocho Festival in America 119,986 people pulverised our record. I think your
record may be safe from the Americans as they don’t drink tea..... well, in
Boston maybe!
Anymore De Laune claimants?
