To continue its outreach in the local community, South Yorkshire developer Barratt Homes has donated a range of books to Inspire’s Harworth and Bircotes Library.

The library, which is close to the homebuilder’s Lancaster Gardens development on Bawtry Road has been at the heart of the local community for many years, offering books to suit everyone.

Barratt Homes’ contribution consisted of over forty books, ranging from classic children’s stories like Michael Rosen’s ‘We’re Going on a Bear Hunt’, to adult novels like Bob Mortimer’s ‘The Satsuma Complex’.

Prospective buyers can also take advantage of a number of different schemes and offers tailored to suit them, including Barratt Homes’ Part Exchange scheme. This sees the developer becoming a buyer for the homebuyer’s existing property, avoiding the hassle of being on a property chain and eliminating any estate agency fees.
