Home-hunters in Wootton will attend a housebuilder’s special first-time buyer event this weekend to find out about the support available through a Government scheme.
Bovis Homes' Wootton Park location
First-time buyers and families are invited to Bovis Homes’ Wootton Park location, off Fields Road, to view the new-build homes available – including from the housebuilder’s new homes collection - and learn more about the Help to Buy – Equity Loan initiative.
The Help to Buy event will take place this Saturday and Sunday, from 10am to 5pm, and visitors will be able to speak with Bovis Homes’ sales colleagues.
Heather Suffield, regional marketing manager at Bovis Homes, said: “This weekend’s Help to Buy event at our Wootton Park location promises to be a brilliant opportunity for first-time buyers to view our new-build homes, which includes those from our new range.
“We are very proud of the quality of homes at our Wootton Park development and that we have great options for those wanting to climb onto the housing ladder.”
Wootton Park is ideally located just off the A421 which links to the M1 motorway. Bedford is only five miles away and London Luton Airport is 25 miles away.

In Wootton, there are two convenience stores, a post office and a pharmacy. The village is a hive of activity with sports and clubs for all ages, including football, badminton tennis, dance, dog training and quilting. The village also has two pubs.
There are two pre-schools in Wootton and the Lower School is for primary age children. Wootton Upper School, an academy, is one of the top performing schools in the county for senior pupils and Kimberley College, in Stewartby, specialises in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics. Four independent schools offer education for pupils aged 3 months to 18 years.
Using the Help to Buy – Equity Loan scheme, home buyers need just a five per cent cash deposit, with the Government providing an equity loan of up to 20 per cent of the value of the property being bought. Purchasers then need to secure up to a 75 per cent mortgage.
