LOCALS are being asked to take part in a Guinness World Record attempt next month.

Be Well Barnsley - a free service that supports and promotes healthy living - will try to break the world record for the largest chair-based exercise class.

The excercise is suitable for all ages and all abilities, and organisers want as many locals to turn out as possible.

The attempt will take place on Sunday, August 14, at the Locke Park Summer Gala from 2pm.

For more information, call 0800 016 9133 or find the group on Facebook.
