A Canterbury student’s work has gone on display in the Beaney’s visitor information centre after winning a competition to design a leaflet aimed at visitors from Spain.

Evie Read (13) studies Spanish at Archbishop’s School and took part in the challenge organised in partnership with Canterbury Museums and Galleries.

In recognition of her achievement Evie took home an annual visitor pass for all her family to access Canterbury’s museums as well as a branded water flask.

Evie said: “I love Canterbury. I grew up here and it’s full of nice old places, good for shopping and there are two cinemas and a swimming pool.

Evie’s leaflet is designed for Spanish visitors

“It’s a great place for foreign students to visit because you can learn, but also have a good time.

“The people are nice and it’s really safe. There’s really not much to dislike.”

Evie believes learning Spanish is a great choice as it opens up a number of exciting travel opportunities and is easier than some other languages.

“Spanish is better than French because it’s spoken all across the world, the pronunciation is easier, and it sounds like it’s spelt” said Evie.

Copies of Evie’s leaflet is available for visitors to the Beaney for the next week.
