New pitch unveiled at Winterbourne Academy

OLD boy Dave Attwood returned to Winterbourne Academy to officially open the school's new all-weather pitch.

The Bristol Bears lock, who attended the school when it was known as the Ridings, unveiled a plaque at a presentation attended by students and staff from the school and parent academy Olympus.

The pitch has a playing surface certified to World Rugby and FIFA standards for playing rugby and football.

The nine-week project, by contractors Velocity, was funded by the school.

Dave was joined by head teacher Jason Beardmore, Olympus chief executive Dave Baker and parish councillors for the ceremony.
