HAWORTH Brownies and Guides have joined in an attempt to snag the world record for knitting bunting.

The girls, their families and friends took up a challenge from Lees Cum Cross Roads Village Association to help knit five miles of bunting.

The Bunting Bonkers project will see 35,000 flags produced.

Alison Armstrong, who is leading the project, said the knitting was "coming along a storm" with many local people knitting at home.

She said: "We now need all knitters to drop off at our collection points or ring for collection of completed triangles so we can see where we are at.

"We also have knitting patterns on our Facebook page for anyone who would like to join the five miles challenge.

"We are still looking for wool and needle donations. Knit knit knit like your needles are on fire!"

Once the bunting has been judged for the world record, the flags will be made into blankets for charities.

The next Bunting Bonkers meeting will be on Wednesday November 27 at the Bronte Hotel at 7pm, open to everyone.
