BRICKS of a very different kind were being used to build new homes at Elan’s South Molton development at the weekend.

For house builder Elan and South Molton Library Lego Club jointly hosted a family fun day on Saturday, where young ‘architects’ were able to show off their house building skills using Lego.

Children who came along were able to create their ideal homes out of Lego inside the Sheldon view home at Elan @ The Gateway. The Mayor of South Molton, Cllr Stephen Lock, was there to help judge the best house creations. Every child was given a Lego gift to take away too.

Andrea Nippe, sales director for Elan Homes in the South, said: “We were delighted with how many families took the opportunity to come along and join in the fun, with 20 children aged from four to 14 enjoying the Lego at one stage. I would like to say a big thank you to the children who got on so well, were so polite and worked in teams to make their Lego houses. We are grateful to the Mayor for his support too.


“The event was also an opportunity for mums and dads to view our ‘life size’ Belvoir show home and Sheldon view home, to experience what family life at Elan @ The Gateway would be like.”

The Lego family fun day was part of Elan’s ‘summer of events’ at The Gateway which also includes:

  • August 11, 4pm – 7pm: Part Exchange/assisted move event with a local estate agent on hand to undertake valuations on potential customer’s existing homes
  • August 27/28: Help to Buy weekend with an independent financial advisor in attendance.

Elan Homes is creating a new community of 150 brand new two, three and four-bedroom properties at Elan @ The Gateway, with some boasting stunning views across the open field towards Exmoor.

Elan @ The Gateway will offer a fantastic lifestyle to residents, with access to footpaths and woodland close by as well as an excellent range of schools, shops, cafés and leisure facilities on its doorstep.

Phase two is now underway at the 20-acre development, which is located between Parsonage Lane and Station Road on the northern side of the town.
