A small peace garden has been opened off Borough High Street with the ceremony timed to coincide with the approach of Remembrance Sunday.
The just completed project is the result of five years of volunteer input from the Little Dorrit Park Steering Group, the neighbouring Cathedral and St. Joseph's Schools and the local community.
The design for the mosaic – by 9-year-old St Joseph's pupil Natalie Agaiby – was chosen from amongst twenty designs by children from the two church schools. The ribbon was cut by pupil representatives.

The design and installation of the garden has been supported by Bankside Open Spaces Trust and Southwark Council's Regeneration and Parks Departments. Funding came from Living Spaces, Bankside and Borough Community Council, Southwark Council, PricewaterhouseCoopers and Metropolitan Public Gardens Association.
