Worle Juniors Football Club has site refurbished by team of students from Weston Bay
PUBLISHED: 15:00 30 June 2017
A group of students spent two weeks renovating a football team’s clubhouse as part of a college project.
The teeangers, who attend Weston Bay, run by Weston College, organised the project themselves, and raised the £600 they needed to do the work.
Weston Bay is a residential facility for students with autism, and every year its students are given a community building project to organise.
The group refurbished Worle Juniors FC’s hut, in Queensway and cleared brambles from around the pitch, before laying a patio and repairing fences.
Marcus Tyler, residential co-ordinator at Weston Bay, said: “They worked really hard, and the reception on the grand opening was fantastic.
“The club was really welcoming and appreciative.”
The club presented each student with a trophy to thank them for their efforts.
Marcus said: “It was a really personal thank you which meant a lot.”
