VISITORS to Clewer Green Church of England First School's autumn fair found they had become record breakers on Saturday - after 464 of them took part in a mass flossing dance performance.

Flossing is a dance move involving repeated arm swinging with clenched fists. It became a massive craze last year.

The current record for highest number of flossing dancers at one time is 359 - but the number who took part in the record breaking attempt at the Hatch Lane school beat that by more than 100.

Even headteacher Martin Tinsley had a go.

To make an official Guinness World Record attempt the school had to recruit independent stewards, witnesses and time keepers from the broader Windsor community. Councillors Dee Quick and Natasha Airey volunteered their services, along with representatives from Windsor Football Club and the Football Association.

Comedian and regular Windsor panto star Kevin Cruise egged everybody on.

Nerys Jones, chairman of the Parent Teachers Association said: "There has been such an amazing atmosphere here today. Not only did we manage to gather enough people to break the flossing record but we also broke our own attendance record for our autumn fair with over 700 people passing through the gates on what was a very wet day. It has been a great experience for everyone who participated and we hope we have raised valuable funds for the school while having a great deal of fun too."

Headteacher Martin Tinsley said: "The flossing event has allowed us to involve many people from our wider community and it has been a joy to welcome them into our school. I loved the fact that pretty much everyone got involved in the record breaking attempt from our pupils, their parents, grandparents and friends to teachers, past pupils, local councillors, the wonderful Kevin Cruise and even a dog and a horse."
