A BRAND-new showhome has launched at a 2,500 home development near Wantage.

Persimmon Homes Wessex says its new development, Wellington Gate, off Newlands Drive in Grove, has been designed to meet the needs of first-time buyers, families and people moving up the property ladder.

Pauline Fletcher, sales and marketing director, said: “We look forward to welcoming visitors to our fantastic new showhome. A development really comes to life when people can get an idea of what is on offer."

The 'marketing suite' for the development on the former RAF Airfield is open from 11am to 6pm, Thursday through to Monday.
