AN AUTISM day centre has been given a facelift by a workers from a highways firm.

The grounds of Anglesey Lodge, which is run by Hampshire Autistic Society, in Anglesey Road, Alverstoke, Gosport, has been revamped by six staff from Amey.

They helped fill in potholes around the site and tidied up the grounds.

They cut back overgrown brambles, tidied the tree line and removed some dead trees to make the grounds were clean and safe.

Staff from the centre gave an introductory talk about how autism affects people and the people who use the service.

It supports 30 autistic adults each day with a range of activities, including cookery, IT, pottery, woodwork and life skills.

Hannah Godfrey, from the society, said: ‘The guys from Amey were truly wonderful and the work they did in one day has made a huge difference to our learners and support workers.

‘Arriving at Anglesey Lodge is now a much more pleasurable experience and we are very grateful.’
