Harry Potter & Stranraer!

STRANRAER will be at the centre of a world record attempt on "Children In Need" night.

As Harry Potter mania sweeps the country, BBC "Children In Need" are planning to make it a main feature of this year’s outside broadcasts.

They hope to enter the Guinness Book of World Records with the largest gathering of Harry Potter lookalikes at any one time.

The plan is that the record will be achieved by the large simultaneous gathering of "Harry Potters" from all the outside broadcasts across the country at around 8.30 p.m. on "Children In Need" night, Friday, 16 November.

Presenter Heather Suttie will be in Stranraer to link up with Rob McLean and Jackie Bird in the studio in Glasgow.

A BBC spokesman said:

"The fun begins at 7 p.m. and promises to have plenty on offer to keep local fundraisers and party-goers entertained.

"We hope that many local fundraisers will try to help us achieve the Harry Potter record by sporting glasses and lightning bolt scars.

"We will even have face-painters there on the night to assist with the Harry potter fun".
