CHILDREN from Burnham and Highbridge are being invited to sign up this month to take part in a world record breaking attempt for the most people signing and singing at the same time.

SignHealth, a healthcare charity for deaf people, is hoping that hundreds of pupils from the area will take part in a national drive that would see more than 15,000 schoolchildren take part in the sign2sing project, which will aim to beat the current record of 13,418 people.

SignHealth chief executive Steve Powell said: “Any schools from Burnham-on-Sea and Highbridge that decide to take part will be joining hundreds of schools all over the country at 2.45pm on February 9 when they attempt to break the world record.”
