Pupils visit water works

PUBLISHED: 20:00 15 January 2011


HUNDREDS of children learned about the importance of water during a school trip to Bleadon sewage works.

More than 700 youngsters visited the Wessex Water site, off Accommodation Road, where they learnt how sewage is treated before it is safely released into the environment.

Sue Goodland, Wessex Water’s education adviser who runs trips on the site, said: “Weston education centre was extremely popular with schools from the area in 2010 and we are pleased to have helped bring science to life for so many children.”
