magic of Harry Potter is about to arrive as dozens of children take
part in a Potter treasure hunt and fancy dress parade

and other Potter characters in their windows. Children who spot
them all will win a certificate and the first prize is a trip to
the Children's BBC TV studios at White City.
Potter Treasure Hunt is sponsored by Fletcher Estates in the Terrace,
where entry forms can be picked up free of charge. The winners will
be announced on Saturday June 7th, at the opening of the Bedford
Park Festival, opposite Turnham Green tube station.

be on the theme of Harry Potter. "Each year the costumes get
better and better and we're hoping for some really imaginative entries"
said Torin Douglas, one of the festival organisers.
