Developer is walking in a Wixams Wonderland for local event


Barratt and David Wilson Homes Northampton is ‘walking in a Wixams wonderland’ after sponsoring a local event for a growing village community in Bedfordshire.

The Wixams Winter Wonderland will take place on Saturday 1st December and is set to play host to craft stalls, funfair rides, food vendors and entertainment.

As the housebuilder is currently crafting a selection of properties at its Willow Grove development on Southern Cross, it was keen to support the local festive celebration nearby.

Chair Person for the Wixams Events Team, Nathan Sutters, said: “Wixams Events Team started seven years ago as a small village craft fair and the events have grown in popularity.

“We decided to go bigger and turn the Christmas event into a street fair, which has crafts, a funfair and entertainment. This year will be the biggest and best yet.”

As well as stalls and rides, there will be a human snow globe, a chance to meet Santa Claus, a mobile zoo and a 30ft Christmas tree which has been decorated by local schools in the area.

Alison Raine, Sales Director at Barratt and David Wilson Homes Northampton, said: “We were delighted to be able to support the Wixams wonderland event and look forward to hearing all about it.

“As we are creating a new community in the area it was important for us to get behind a well-known festive celebration which many families in the area enjoy each year.”

Willow Grove forms part of the thriving new community in Wixams Village, with properties to suit first-time buyers, growing families and working professionals alike.

Residing at the development, homebuyers will be presented with a breath of fresh air within the area’s rural setting, with a variety of country parks, cycle routes and riverside strolls offering a relaxed lifestyle.

Strong connections to Milton Keynes and London are valuable for working professionals, whilst parents have plenty of well-regarded schooling options available for children of all ages.

Elegant wine and cocktails bars in Bedford provide an enjoyable night out, whilst those who prefer a quieter evening have the option of charming village pubs closer to home.
