If you fancy being a record breaker then Milton Country Park could be the place for you next month.
On September 4, well over a thousand players are expected to take part in an official
Guinness World Records attempt at playing the world’s largest game of hide and seek, at the country park, which is off the A10.
Cambridgeshire Search and Rescue (CamSAR), which is organising the event, has run two attempts so far, attracting around 400 players in 2014 rising to about 1,100 in 2015.
At this rate, the rescue team expects to comfortably beat the 1,437 world record this year.

It offers visitors a chance to meet other emergency services who will be exhibiting, get lifesaving instruction from ambulance and CamSAR staff, meet Shadow the trainee search puppy, and enjoy a barbecue.
