Showhomes at Persimmon’s Purton development are set to reopen after lockdown restrictions were eased.

The housebuilder closed all showhomes when lockdown came into effect on March 25 but has since trained all staff in social distancing and is in a position to reopen.

Saxon Grove on Restrop Road, Purton is among the first to reopen.

Managing director of Persimmon Homes Wessex Richard Briggs said: “We are delighted that we are now in a position to be reopening this development in Purton.

“The health, safety and wellbeing of the public and everyone who works on our sites remain the top priority.

“Being able to meet with househunters, albeit at a safe distance, is an important step forward.”
