Thanet school girl wins photo comp

Ten-year-old school girl Katie Winkworth, from Monkton near Ramsgate,
has been announced as the first winner of a monthly photo competition,
run by The Minnis Bar and Restaurant.  Katie wins a sumptuous
three-course meal for two people.

The restaurant, which overlooks Minnis Bay in Birchington, Kent is
running the competition to encourage visitors to the area.  The
competition will run until  the end of September. It is free to enter
and no purchase is necessary. Entrants simply email their photos to:

Leading entries are displayed on The Minnis’ website and monthly winners will
receive a free meal for two.  An overall winner, to be announced in
October will receive a meal for four and an complimentary overnight
stay at the legendary overnight stay at the legendary Walpole Bay
Hotel in Cliftonville.

“The standard of entries is incredibly high, but we chose Kate’s
‘Stepping on Reculver Towers’ because of her appreciation of
perspective and the contrast of dark and light,” said The Minnis’ chef
patron Jason Freedman.

The winning photo depicts Katie’s sister appearing to be about to
squash the 12th-century towers of the Reculver’s Roman 'Saxon Shore'
fort underfoot, as if it were no more than just a child’s sandcastle.

The beachfront Minnis Bar & Restaurant overlooks the golden sands of
Minnis Bay in Birchington, with coastal views towards the ruins of the
Roman fort at Reculver.

The Minnis, which has long been popular with families, has a take-away
service for those who wish to have their lunch on the beach and
operates a kiosk selling beach toys, inflatables and boats, snacks,
seafood and an ice creams in the summer months.
