A children's entertainer wants to break a Guinness world record attempt to bring the Bexley community together in the wake of the Danson Festival being cancelled.

Suzanne Moorcroft, 35, of Hurst Road, Bexley, wants to hold the Ready Teddy Scoot challenge on the pathways of the park to support Sands Stillbirth & neonatal death charity.

The record attempt will hopefully see more than 500 children taking part to make the longest parade of push/kick scooters.

The event will provisionally take place on July 26 this year.

The event is being held in remembrance of Sarah Johnson's son called Teddy who died last year when he was just a year old.

Mrs Moorcroft said: "I want to hold this event to lift people's spirits in light of the festival being cancelled and bring the community together."
