CRAFTY residents welcomed a special guest to help them put the finishing touches to their world record attempt.

Children in Need’s Pudsey visited Howbury Lodge to see the work members of the Friends of the Elderly day care service had put in making their own personalised bunting triangle, alongside clients from Among Friends Wichenford.

The triangles have now been stitched together as part of an attempt at the Three Counties Showground to break the record for the world’s longest bunting in aid of the charity, which supports disadvantaged children in England and abroad.

Pudsey said: “I had an amazing day at Howbury Lodge. The service has made a really valuable contribution to our Children in Need bunting challenge – hopefully we will beat the current world record.

“The challenge will raise lots of money for deprived children and we couldn’t do it without Howbury Lodge.”

Manager Shirley Bradley added: “The bunting challenge is a wonderful example of different generations working together for a truly worthwhile cause.

“The clients at Howbury Lodge are fun, active individuals who are keen to contibute to the community and give something back to those in need.”
