The Bungee Jumping. For the first time in the history of
the Ledbury Carnival, 35 brave Ledbury people got the chance to Bungee Jump in
the middle of the High Street. The jumpers were lifted 160 feet to the top and
BUNGEE!! It cost £50GBP a jump, but the fee includes membership to the Bungee Jumping Club, which allows jumpers to jump again for
half price. This page follows one such jumper. His name was Jon
The bottom of the crane. That purple thing in the
back is the inflatable to catch people if any of the
safety devices fail. Luckly, it wasn't needed!
Here's Jon, before the jump.
Here you see him in the crane, with the safety
devices in place.
The crane is slowly lifted. Brave Simon Bird (on the
right, also from Tesco) went up with him to take photos
of him jumping.
Now at the top. Any minute now!
A view before he jumps. Look at the town from the top.
Not many people get to see it from that height.
There he goes!

Well done. He done it. Safely on the ground again.
