World's Longest Damper Attempt a success, cooking 153m

CHARLEVILLE rose to the challenge today at the World's Longest Dampest Attempt, cooking 153m of damper to reclaim the world record from a Swedish scout troupe who cooked a 125m loaf in 2006.

Hundreds of people from all over Australia turned up to the Charleville Fishing & Restocking Club to get their hands dirty and be part of the significant milestone.

Everything has been documented and will now be submitted to the Guinness Book of Records for approval.
