Bromley by Bow Youth Outreach and Community Care Group, service provider
We wanted the path across the land at the Bromley by Bow Centre to symbolise
a river running through a green oasis. Over 100 bricks were made, by young
people between the ages of seven and eighteen and by people with special
needs, each decorated with images of frogs, fish, pebbles and in one case
a shopping trolley!

A rout is a large evening party or reception, much in vogue in the 18th and early 19th centuries. In 1789 Brooks's gave a ball to celebrate the 'joyful event' of King George III regaining his sanity. Recently routs have been held at intervals of about ten years at the club.

Catholic Archdiocese of Southwark, founded 1850, 380,000 members
The light of the candle symbolises Christ, the Light of the World, who enlightens all people. This particular candle is decorated with images that are intimately connected with the Incarnation and the Jubilee of that event in this Year 2000. The upper icon represents the Annunciation. The lower icon shows the birth of Christ in Bethlehem. The candle was decorated by Mrs Maurizia Lees.
Catholic Archdiocese of Westminster, founded 1850, 860,000 members
The rosary originates from the 12th-century popular devotions. The prayers - one Our Father, ten Hail Marys and a Glory Be - are spoken while particular episodes of the lives of Jesus and Mary are reflected on. Creeds were developed from the 2nd century. This is one of the earliest, called the Apostles' Creed, and is still used in worship and private prayer.
Central London Outdoors Group, founded 1937, 150 members
Sometimes we need to escape. London at the turn of the Millennium is thriving, cosmopolitan, sophisticated. But sometimes we need to head for the hills, to rediscover something more basic. The compass points the way to a challenging hike across wild countryside or simply good conversation in a country pub.
