Oldfields to Feature on TV

When local couple Tim Benson of Oldfields Garage & Fliss Albert a Hairdresser from Renaissance started planning to build their own home in Kingsland, just outside Leominster; they wouldn't have believed that in just 11 months they would be moving in and it would be featured on a TV programme on More4 called "Building the Dream."

The build was filmed by True North Productions for Channel 4 and they followed the build from start to finish, including spending some time filming at Oldfields Garage and Renaissance to get a bit of background to Tim and Fliss and also at Grange Court in Leominster, where the couple were getting married in September 2014.

The couple who used locally based businesses and trades wherever possible to build the house managed to project manage the build themselves and combined the build with working at Oldfields Garage and Renaissance respectively. Tim said "it was a great experience to be part of the programme and we really enjoyed the process. It helped to make some great improvements to our home. Whilst it was hard work, it was very rewarding and we are really pleased with what we have managed to achieve."

The programme will feature local areas and businesses, including Kingsland village, Border Oak in Kingsland, The Corners Inn in Kingsland, Leominster Town, Grange Court in Leominster, Kingspan in Pembridge, Oldfields Garage Services in Leominster, Renaissance Hair & Beauty in Leominster & Holly Cottage in New Radnor.

The programme is to be aired tomorrow on More4 at 9pm on Tuesday 21st October.
