Don’t pack away that bobble hat just yet - you could use it to help break a world record.

A final call has gone out for people to take part in an attempt to break the world record for the highest number of people in one place wearing a bobble hat.

The madcap venture is the idea of teachers at Great Cornard Middle School, which is due close this summer as part of the move to a two-tier system.

To mark the occasion an open day is being held tomorrow afternoon - Saturday May 18 - with the unseasonal record attempt as the grand finale.

People are being invited to go along to help beat the existing record of 764 hat-wearers.

Rules for the record are very strict and to count each hat must be made of wool and have a woollen bobble on top.

The organisers have spare hats if you don’t have one.
