The College Park development will be opening with chocolate workshops by Willie Hartcourt-Cooze on Saturday, February 1.

A BRAND new housing development in Bideford will be opening on Saturday with the red ribbon cut by Devon chocolatier Willie Harcourt-Cooze.

Mr Harcourt-Cooze rose to fame when he launched his luxury chocolate brand on television show Willie’s Wonky Chocolate Factory and will be running two 45 minute workshops at the event.

Visitors will have a chance to look around the development on Abbotsham Road from 11am until 4pm and at midday and 2pm Mr Harcourt-Cooze will be preparing and cooking three different chocolate recipes.

There will also be samples of different kinds of chocolate and audience members can also sample puddings and ask the chocolatiers any questions.

Three of the new Redrow showhomes will be on view during the day and one lucky visitor can have the chance to win a signed copy of Willie’s book and more than £70 worth of chocolate.

Emma Solman, area sales manager for Redrow South West, said: “We are thrilled to welcome Willie to College Park and give him the run of a showhome kitchen.

“This will be a great opportunity for people to see a Redrow home come to life and imagine what it would be like to entertain in one of them.

“Our fantastic team of sales consultants will also be on hand all day to show you around and answer any questions.”

There will be 38 homes released in the first phase of College Park which will include three and four bedroom properties.
