It is Cornwall versus Devon in the battle of the bunting.

Torpoint is trying to set a new world record for the largest stretch ever. But so is a town across the Tamar.

At the moment the record is 3,400.

Organised by the Torpoint Town Partnership, the world record attempt is part of celebrations taking place at Thanckes Park on Monday to mark the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee. During the day there will be music from local bands and choirs and during the evening there will be fireworks and lighting of a beacon as part of the network of beacons being lit across the country.

Stringent regulations around an attempt on this record require qualified surveyors to independently certify the length of bunting achieved.

Eddie Andrews, chair of the Torpoint Town Partnership, said; “Following Kim Brownhill’s suggestion to attempt a Guinness World Record as a lasting record of Torpoint’s celebrations we are very grateful for the assistance that CORMAC and Kemps have offered us free of charge for this event. The world record attempt will be part of a packed programme which we have planned to celebrate the Diamond Jubilee and we look forward to seeing all of Torpoint there.”

Meanwhile, Morchard Bishop across the Tamar will be hoping their string of bunting beats Torpoint.
