WANTAGE MP Ed Vaizey led a ground-breaking ceremony for a major new office block in his constituency.

Mr Vaizey dug the first hole on the 36,000sq ft new build at Grove Business Park near Wantage.

Construction started this month at the first of a number of new buildings planned over coming years at the park.

Mr Vaizey said: “The new development will hopefully bring yet more innovative companies and help in creating further job opportunities at a very exciting time for the area when there is a significant residential expansion well underway in Grove and Wantage.”

The block will have 10 units from 1,900 to 6,700sq ft.
