BGS breaks world record at ‘Love Bradford’

2018-04-06T10:04:02+00:00 September 16th, 2016|
Bradfordians young and old broke a world record, at Bradford’s City Park on Thursday 15 September, with more than 2,300 people showing their love for Bradford, connecting people from across the district in a celebration of our friendly, diverse and extraordinary hometown.

The Lord Mayor of Bradford, Councillor Geoff Reid, called on people to join him in creating the world’s longest chain of people making heart-shaped hand gestures. He encouraged citizens, schoolchildren, businesses and local organisations to take part in the stunt, which is aimed at fostering local pride while also raising money for the Lord Mayor’s Appeal.

Among the bustling crowd, 27 Bradford Grammar School Junior pupils excitedly joined the chain in a bid to celebrate their beloved city.

Simon Hinchliffe, BGS Headmaster said “Junior School pupils and staff at Bradford Grammar School were thrilled to be part of the record breaking ‘Love Bradford’ event at City Park yesterday to create the world’s largest heart shaped gesture. The sun was shining, everyone was smiling and it was wonderful to see folk turning out in such large numbers to have a bit of fun together. A good day for our great city.”

The event has been named #LoveBradford, after a phrase used on social media by people highlighting positive news and events from the city.
