Buxton Rotary Club is hoping to make it into the Guinness Book of World Records at its bazaar and fun day.

Next month the annual event, with 30 years of history in the town, is back and better than ever.

Bruce Thompson for the club said: “We want to give people more and make it a day to really remember for families so there will be lots going.”

On Saturday, June 3 in the Pavilion Gardens Marquee the bazaar will be taking part in a global attempt to get as many people to stand on a slack-line - a rope suspended inches of the ground - for ten seconds throughout the day.

Bruce said: “People will be doing it one after another throughout the day and so far we are the only country listed in the UK taking part which will really help put Buxton on the map.”
The bazaar has been a part of Buxton fundraising for 30 years and Richard Atherton, the groups’ treasure, said: “Although we have done well over the years we want to take it to the next level and we have games like tin can alley, space hopper races and a treasure hunt as well as inflatable slides on the day, a samba band, and donkey rides so we can attract more families.

“Although this year we are in the marquee next year we hope to be back in the Octogan hall and we are now looking at creating an event for all the family that they will want to return to year on year.”
