Young sports stars open showhome

Young stars from Alton Rugby Club were guests of honour at the opening of new showhomes in the town, kicking off sales at the Persimmon Homes Barley Fields development.

Members of the Alton Under-13s visited the site to cut the ribbon on the stunning Maple and Birch show houses, as a thank you for being sponsored by the leading housebuilder.

Rob Allen, sales director for Persimmon Homes South Coast, said: “We always look for ways to support local groups and the Alton Rugby Club does superb work with young people in the community, running very successful teams.

“We were delighted to sponsor their new team strip and even more pleased that members of the team could join us for the official opening of our showhome.”

Barley Fields includes a selection of one and two bedroom apartments and two, three, four and five bedroom houses, offering flexible family accommodation, from just £126,996, with the Government’s FirstBuy scheme.

The location, less than a mile from Alton town centre on Anstey Road, makes Barley Fields perfect for young professionals and growing families.

The Birch showhome illustrates perfectly proportioned three bedroom living, while the Maple sees the addition of an ensuite to the master bedroom, for a touch more luxury and convenience. Both showhomes are open seven days a week, from 10am to 5pm.
