Social housing tenants in Fenland are invited to a house swapping event to find a new home that better suits their needs.

Circle Housing Roddons’ Big House Swap is on Wednesday November 19 as house swapping website House Exchange makes its first visit to the town following a national tour of more than 50 locations.

The website allows those living in a property that’s no longer suited to their needs to exchange it for one of a different size or in a new location.

Those attending will be able to get expert advice on the best way to promote their property, get help using the website and find out how to swap homes with other housing association or council.

Kim Gilden, head of House Exchange, said: “We’re really excited to visit Wisbech for the first time to share the benefits of House Exchange with local people.
