GUERNSEY guides were yesterday putting the finishing touches to two giant flags they have created as part of an attempt to break a bunting world record for Comic Relief.

The 18th Deslisles Guides are one of 500 units across the UK which will help Blue Peter presenter Helen Skelton’s bid to break the record, one of seven challenges for the charity.

The group was asked to make two of the 1,000 pennants to be strung along the Humber Bridge to set a new record for the world’s longest bunting.

Guides Bailiwick commissioner Yvonne Le Page said the two-metre-long pennants were made using curtains and bed sheets. ‘We also have to raise £50 and the girls will have to decide how they want to do that.’
