School hoping to break conker record

A HENFIELD school is attempting to break a Guinness World Record at its annual bonfire night.

Tonight (Saturday November 5) St Peter’s School, Fabian Way is hoping to set a new record for ‘the most simultaneous games of conkers’.

The record currently stands at 251 games played by 501 people. This was set by the Royal Horticultural Society, Woking in October 2010.

The gates for the bonfire celebrations will open at 5.30pm with the attempt taking place shortly afterwards.
