YOUNGSTERS were delighted when sailors visited their school to give it a tidy-up.

The Royal Navy system engineering and management trainees took a day out from training at HMS Collingwood in Fareham.

Six officers helped clear and cut overgrown areas at Alverstoke Infant School in Gosport.

They also made a water play area for the pupils to enjoy.

Headteacher Steph Greenwood said: ‘We have a large number of service families in the school so are always happy to work alongside the Royal Navy.

‘We are very grateful for the offer of help and everything that they’ve done for us.’

The officers at Collingwood are in the second phase of their course.

When they finish they will qualify as deputy weapon engineering officers.
