TWO Bristol City footballers visited Nailsea to help kick off a building project at a special school.
First team players Marvin Elliott and Liam Fontaine cut the first turf at Ravenswood School to celebrate the start of a building project.
Three new classrooms costing £450,000 are to be built at the Pound Lane school as part of a major refurbishment.
Helping the players was pupil Ben Heap, 14, who won a school drawing competition with his design on how the new classrooms should look.
It was a a non-uniform day for the pupils who sported hard hats and dressed up as builders, architects and surveyors for the occasion.
Head teacher Philippa Clark said: "This is a thrilling development for the school and will give us the extra space and modern facilities needed for 21st century learning."
