A WELL-KNOWN sportswoman showed youngsters a trick or two when she attended the official opening of a community facility on Friday.

England women’s football goalkeeper Siobhan Chamberlain joined North Somerset Council chairman Terry Porter at the event at Worle Community School.

The council’s £2.7million project, known as @Worle, combines community sports facilities with day services for people with learning disabilities, provided by the Brandon Trust on behalf of the council.

Banwell Pottery, also run by Brandon Trust, as well as the council’s community meals service, have also relocated to the new building in Redwing Drive.

At Friday’s opening the facilities were handed over to the @Worle Trust, a not-for-profit organisation which will take over the management of the facility.

The trust is made up of representatives from Worle Community School, North Somerset Council, the Brandon Trust and the Somerset County Football Association.
