  Family firm to make Potter brooms
Updated 08 October 2004, 20.17
The Nash family are making Potter brooms
Kids all over the world will be thrilled when they see Harry Potter on his Firebolt broom in the next film.

But for a group of children from Hampshire it'll be even more amazing, because their family makes the brooms.

Potter film bosses need lots of them for the Goblet of Fire and the Nash family business will be making them.

Andy Nash said: "there are seven grandchildren in the family and they are very excited and proud, telling all their friends in school."

Six members of the Nash family work on making the brooms, in a business that's been going for 300 years.

Tamazin Simmonds who works on the film found the company on the internet.

Arthur Nash, 65, ran the business until he died earlier this year.

His wife Sue said "Arthur would have been so pleased - he was not very impressed with the brooms they used in the other (Harry Potter) films."
