PANTOMIME characters will parade around Hartley Wintney as part of the village’s annual festival.

The procession, which marks the beginning of the Hartley Wintney Festival, will see children from local schools dress up according to the pantomime theme, from 12.30pm on Saturday, June 14.

The event, in its 24 th year, is organised by Hart Rotary Club, and will raise money for Naomi House, the children’s hospice in Sutton Scotney, and other Rotary charities.
