Hello! I'm new! I thought I'd make my first post an interesting one, so here goes...

Does anyone know why there's a board room table suspended (by crane) above the field behind Potter's Fields Park?

It looks like they're either having a board meeting with a bit of an edge, or playing poker - not sure which. One thing is for sure.. they've been up there for the better part of this afternoon!

I walked past on my lunch hour and had a look. Its a dinner table and the lorry beside it had in large letters on the side. The logo of an online betting company was painted underneath the dinner table so was probably another Potters Field publicity stunt. There were people up there having a posh lunch?

when I saw them, from the bus on the way home, they looked like they were all about to do a mass bungy jump.

The same table was above Jubilee Gardens today:

Hey guys,

I think this is to do with Betfair sponsoring the World Series of Poker Europe in Leicester Square later this month. If I remember correctly they did the same thing last year as well.
