Family Fun Day at Inveraray castle
Posted 7 June, 2012
Saturday 23rd June 12 noon – 4pm
Join us as we attempt to beat the Guinness World Record for the largest knitted blanket.
People from all over Scotland, the UK and as far away as America, have helped in this attempt. It is hoped to have a blanket made up of at least 72,000 squares.
Amongst the other attractions are award winning live music from the Campbeltown Brass Band, face painting, home baking, plants, fire demonstrations, crafts, games and prizes and much much more.

A big thank you to everyone who has helped in the world record attempt and sent blanket squares to us. We’re delighted with such a huge response.
We would now appreciate any assistance you could give us in sewing the blankets together. Our Resource Centre in Helensburgh is open Monday – Saturday from 10am – 2pm. We also have a sewing group on Monday evening from 6.30pm – 9.30pm. If you could spare a couple of hours over the next few weeks, until the 21st June, then we would welcome you with open arms, tea and cake!
We also need volunteers to assist at Inveraray on Friday 22nd & Saturday the 23rd June. There are a number of jobs for volunteers including manning stalls, marshalling, holding the blanket up for photo shoot, etc. – it will take many hands to hold it up in front of the castle!
