Elves wanted to break world record in Gravesend
A THOUSAND elves are wanted to break a world record and raise money for Gravesend charity shops.
Santa’s helpers, dressed in red and green, will gather in the square outside the Civic Centre on November 22 at 1.30pm.
Gravesham Council are calling adults and schoolchildren alike to take part in the event, part of their Twelve Days of Christmas programme and will be providing all elves with a free hat with ears.
In honour of the third day’s theme, Three French Hens, which represent Faith, Hope and Charity, the town’s charity shops will be putting on activities all day.
The current record for the largest gathering of elves is held by Ammanford, Camarthenshire – where 762 elves were recorded in November last year.
The festive extravaganza begins on November 15 with a lantern parade and Christmas lights switch-on led by illuminated snow birds representing a partridge in a pear tree.
