A BORDER primary school is looking to sock it to the English and claim a Guinness world record for an amateur puppet show.
Three months of preparation by the Baranduda Primary School community has gone into the bid to break the mark of 402 sock puppets, achieved by Devon’s Cockington Primary School in July, 2003.
Baranduda school council member Kerryn O’Brien said the record attempt would be made on Friday night as part of the Baranduda Big Bash.
“We need more than 402 people to break this world record,” she said.
“If people would like to be part of this event, we are asking them to wear either red, yellow, blue or green so we can divide everyone into house colours.”
But Ms O’Brien said anyone could take part — not just those part of the school community.
Sock puppets, which need to have button eyes to qualify for the record, have been made over recent weeks and some will be available on Friday night while others can be brought to the event.
The record attempt will be made about 6.15pm with the bash beginning at the Baranduda Primary School at 4pm.
