Rachel is poster girl for innovative new scheme

City College Plymouth learner Rachel Edwardes is the new poster girl for a scheme to bring the city’s disused landmarks back to life.

The 24-year-old business administration apprentice won a competition to design a poster advertising the initiative, called Plymouth Your Space.

The idea is to bring disused landmarks back to life through making them available for use to entrepreneurs looking to launch businesses such as pop-up shops, temporary cinemas, and even floating restaurants.

Rachel’s prize was £100-worth of shopping vouchers and her poster will be seen all over Plymouth.

She said: “I was delighted to win the competition and hope it helps inspire the same excitement for others.”

Fellow college learners Sophie Lee, aged 21, Billy Edwards, 19, and Rachael Thomsen, 21, also took part in the competition.
