Ebbw Vale’s Sascha makes her TV debut


Those eagled eyed fans of the TV programme Homes Under The Hammer may have spotted our very own Sascha Gill make an appearance in November. Sascha, from our Ebbw Vale branch, began filming last summer and shot further scenes about the action purchase in the middle of January.


Melin housing association purchased the land where the former Waunlwyd Primary School stood for £75,000 at Auction. Melin Homes is a leading Housing Association in South East Wales, it was established in 2007 as a non-profit social housing provider. As one of the major housing associations in Wales, they now own and manage over 3,500 properties in Blaenau Gwent, Monmouthshire, Torfaen, Newport and Powys.


“Homes Under The Hammer were filming the development last summer and they invited me along,” said Sascha. “They were still in the process of building the development at that stage, the experience was nerve wracking as it was my first time on TV.  That being said I really enjoyed it and felt more confident doing it again.


I was invited to return to the new development, which comprises of 15 units, 10 houses, 4 flats, and 1 adapted bungalow, on Wednesday. Homes Under The Hammer wanted to have the properties valued as if they were to be released onto the open market.”


The latest episode featuring Sascha will be aired in the next couple of months.
