Children’s bunting in record attempt
COLOURFUL flags to be used in a world record attempt were decorated by creative children in Pill.
To mark the end of Fairtrade fortnight, youngsters had the chance to draw and write positive Fairtrade messages on 100 flags on Saturday.
These will be used as part of a record attempt, to be held in London on May 8, for the longest ever piece of bunting.
To reach the record, 12,500 flags are needed.
Group member Sue Tuckwell said: “We are really proud that the flags decorated by our community will be part of this record attempt.

“More people are buying and using Fairtrade products, which is the most practical way we can support growers and producers in other parts of the world to get a fair deal.”
