The Recipe To Shared Ownership!

Roll up, roll up!

On the weekend of 13th July 2019 our team went on down to the Dorset seafood festival on the Weymouth harbour to show the community the awesome shared ownership homes we currently have available in Dorset! Did you come down to see us and give our wheel a spin? Marie from Weymouth did as she was our lucky £250 winner! Woo!

As everyone knows, we don’t do things discreetly when it comes to #thisSOthing, so of course we came with a giant deckchair, a slush puppy machine and a giant-sized bucket and spade! It’s just what we do and it’s safe to say the children and their parents loved it!

It was an amazing community event, full to the brim with local businesses, lots of smiling faces and a plenty of sunshine to top it off! We loved meeting the locals and telling them all about what we do and our new homes that could be perfect for them!

Of course, we were loving the seafood and watching people win prizes, but we were there for one reason in particular and that wasn’t to consume as much slush puppy as possible, it was to help the Dorset community understand how shared ownership can help them get on the property ladder, with low deposits in the areas they love.

When the sun started to go down on the Sunday, it was time to pack away and head home, before getting ready to contact everyone who had registered their interest in our shared ownership homes in Dorset. Don’t panic if you missed this fun-filled event, you can still find all our homes here and we are always around to pick up the phone, so give us a call on 01380 735 480!

The Recipe To A Mackerel Bap

As we’re all about making things affordable, the festival was the perfect place for our marketing officers, Cheryl and Gemma to go along to see Ryan at the Note Tavern stand to find out what the cheapest and most simple Dorset-dish would be for us to make ourselves and Cheryl even gave it a go herself! All we needed was:

  • Mackerel caught on Chesil Beach
  • Tartare sauce
  • Bread bap
  • Flour
  • Butter
  • Oil

Sadly, I didn’t quite have the skills needed to go and catch my own fish in Weymouth, but I did manage to grab the ingredients for under £4! Bargain! The frying pan came out, I sprinkled a dash of flour on the fish and I was flippin’ away! It was a simple dish to make and full of flavour, so give it a go and let us know how it tastes!
