PUPILS from a Portishead school helped kick-start the building of the town’s new Sainsbury’s store.
Children from High Down Junior School were joined by Don Cameron, chairman of Portishead Town Council, for a turf-cutting ceremony at the site of the new store in Serbert Way.
The youngsters also buried a time capsule which included their predictions of what the future will look like.
The ceremony marked the beginning of construction on the site, where it is now full steam ahead.
Michelle Box, Sainsbury’s project manager, said: “We have just over five and a half months until we open to customers at the end of October.”

The new store, which will include a café and petrol station, will create around 270 full and part-time jobs. Recruitment is due to start in the coming months and will be advertised locally.
