Bates Solicitors Marketing Director Laura Roberts commented “This firm is delighted to again sponsor the Hartley Wintney Pram Race which offers everyone an opportunity to enjoy a traditional village event with a modern twist. This is the fifth year I have had the pleasure of personally being involved in organising the Pram Race.    It offers a great opportunity to engage with other local businesses so they too can be involved in this ‘fun for all’ charity fundraising occasion”.
