The Pool of London Partnership is working with local
stakeholders on a project to redesign Potters Fields
Park - situated next to City Hall and Tower Bridge - to
be a world class park which is of high quality,
sustainable and meets the needs of its growing number
of users.  Alongside this project, a Management Trust
is being established to manage and maintain the park in
the long-term.  What is needed now is an identity.  
The PLP is launching a competition to come up with a
logo for the new Management Trust for the park.  If you
know the park, use the park, have an idea for a
potential logo then draw it onto the entry form and
send it in.  You could win yourself £50 of vouchers for
HMV, M&S, entry to local attractions or a meal for two.  
To help generate your ideas a free design workshop is
being held on Saturday 13 August. Everyone is welcome
to come along and put your ideas on paper Š drawing
materials will be provided. No need to book, just come
along with your creativity.
