SLM Group proudly supported this year's Bexhill Festival of the Sea and their mermaid world record attempt
On the sunny weekend of the 2nd and 3rd of September, the sixth annual Bexhill Festival Of The Sea was held and SLM Group were proud sponsors of the event.
As well as brilliant music, arts, crafts and entertainment throughout the weekend, there was also a gathering of mermaids, mermen and merbabies on the beach in attempt to beat the Guinness World Record of 300. To their success, 325 mermaids took part resulting in a well earnt Guinness title. The attempt was made even more special by the amazing costumes that people wore.
To help support the challenge, we were there for the weekend cheering them on and we even decorated our Toyota models with mermaid prints for the occasion. It was great to meet so many members of the public and show them around our vehicles, the mermaid decal was certainly a hit! The event also helps to raise awareness of sea conservation and we are very proud to be involved with such an important project.
Here at SLM we would like to say thank you to the event organisers for having us once again. All of our staff who attended had a great time and we already can’t wait for next year!
