World record attempt in Old Buckenham

Guinness World Record attempt 
To celebrate National Libraries Day, which is on Saturday 9 February, Old Buckenham High School students today took part in an attempt to smash the world record for the most people writing a story at multiple venues. The current record is held by 953 people at five venues.
Top-selling author Matt Haig had written the first page of a story called 'My Family and Other Aliens' and the aim has been to get as many students as possible to write one sentence each to continue the story during Wednesday 6 February.
At break and lunchtime students were having to read the story so far and, in turn, add their own sentences. The ever-growing text was continually updated on the school website

Over a hundred schools were simultaneously taking part in this attempt and as Old Buckenham managed to get 32 people to help write the story it seems likely that the existing record will be well and truly beaten.
