Community news for Bourne End, Flackwell Heath, Loudwater and the Wooburns
A BILINGUAL teenager who grew up in Flackwell Heath has scooped a prize for her imaginative storytelling in Spanish. Expat Chloe Madison went to Carrington School and moved to eastern Andalucia six years ago with her family. The 13-year-old’s short story, about an evil painter and a magnifying glass, saw her shortlisted for the final of a Coca Cola sponsored competition out of 1,500 entries. Her prizes include a trip to Amsterdam and a place on a creative writing course in Madrid.
