Royal Border Bridge at Berwick will be blue next week to mark Autism Awareness Week.

Berwick’s iconic Royal Border Bridge is turning blue for a week from Monday, March 27, until Sunday, April 2, to coincide with World Autism Awareness Week.

The tribute has been organised by The Northstar Centre and Border Links in Berwick, and The Pottergate Centre in Alnwick.

It is hoped that the change will make people more aware of the condition and the effect that it has on families all over the country.
