Students have been working hard to give a Worle community centre a fresh look.

Weston Bay is a residential training facility for students who are on the autistic spectrum.

Every year, students demonstrate their skills by taking part in a community project.

This time, they have been applying a fresh lick of paint to Worle Community Centre in Lawrence Road.

The building re-opened on Monday, where users could admire the work.

The students organised the whole project from start to finish, including raising the £600 needed for the materials, and the event itself.

The work took two weeks, and the students also painted a flower mural in the lobby.

Aspirations co-ordinator Heidi Martini from Weston Bay said: “It is a chance for them to give back to the community and develop skills.

“It was a really good project, they were amazing.”
