THREE young artists have been presented with tickets to a pantomime by starring actor and singer H from Steps.

Renee Hinton, five, James Gibson, seven, both from Fareham, and Eleanor Chalmers, nine, from Gosport, each won a colouring competition at Fareham shopping centre.

Ian ‘H’ Watkins hand delivered them their prizes in the magical surroundings of the centre’s Christmas Grotto.

The winners have each been awarded a family ticket to Ferneham Hall’s Beauty and the Beast pantomime, in which he stars.

Young shoppers took part in the colouring contest throughout November and December and a judging panel selected the best entry from each age group.

Pam Marsden, centre director, said: ‘Congratulations to our three winners.

‘Year on year the entries get better and better and it is obvious that a huge amount of hard work and time goes into all of them.’
