A PENSIONER has been able to move closer to her daughter in Ripley thanks to a house builder.

Widow Betty Newbold, 81, used Morris’ SmartMove scheme to buy a four-bed detached property at the Cromford View development.

The scheme means people like Betty can move home quickly and with support, as Morris works with local estate agents to sell a buyer’s property within six weeks.

Betty said: “I lived with my husband in Fareham for 24 years, but when he passed away I decided to move closer to my daughter, Dawn.”
