ORGANISED by South Alive, the world record attempt for the longest human chain of people patting each other on the back will be held on Sunday, December 10.

South Alive manager Cress Evans said the record had not been set and a minimum of 251 people were needed to do it.

“This is a really good opportunity to say well done to everyone and to literally give each other a pat on the back and to take the time to recognise the work people in the community have been doing. Everyone was welcome to join,” she said.

The event will be photographed and videoed for the purposes of Guinness World Record verification. For more information phone South Alive on (03) 218 6882 or email
