Young people produce their guide to Malvern
Young people have produced a new guide of things to see and do in Malvern aimed at their own age group.
Malvern Essentials for Young People features 29 places recommended for teenagers and includes places to eat and visit, things to do on a budget and things that are better enjoyed with friends or with family.
It also includes a short history of Malvern and local hints such as the best spots to take a selfie and tips about where free wi-fi is available.
While there are already numerous leaflets and online information available for visitors to Malvern, young people felt there was nothing that really reflected how they viewed the town or what they enjoyed doing.
More than 100 Year 7 students at Dyson Perrins Church of England Academy worked with volunteers from the Heritage Lottery funded Great Malvern: Route to the Hills project to design and produce the finished product.
Zoe Wilding, one of the students who worked on the guide, said: “I like Malvern because it’s a nice small town and includes lots of places for people to go and meet other people. It’s also got the Malvern Hills which are amazing.”
Jacob Brown, another of the pupils involved, added: “I think Malvern is good for someone my age because there are lots of places to hang out enjoy themselves.”
Cllr David Watkins, Portfolio Holder for Healthier Communities on Malvern Hills District Council, said: “I believe Malvern is a wonderful place for young people to live and visit and who better to show them that than young people themselves.”
Copies of the guide are available for free from Malvern Tourist Information Centre.
