Nightsafe group announces design winner
THE teenage winner of a community competition to design a new Night Safe logo will be presented with her prize on Thursday.
Gloucester's Nightsafe group teams police up with city councillors and businesses to reduce crime in the city at night.
More than 40 designers entered the contest with hopes of winning shopping vouchers and an Xbox 360 games console donated by The Registry nightclub.
Judges picked out 13-year-old Maia Brookes from Tuffley as the best competition entry.

Chair of NightSafe, councillor Jennie Dallimore said: "It was great to have so much interest in designing a logo, the standard of entry was very high.
"The multi agency group all voted on the winner and we are delighted to use Maia's entry. Any publicity around the Nightsafe work will now have its own branding."
Police Chief Inspector Richard Burge says the Nightsafe group is a key toll in making the city safer at night.
"Nightsafe has been a useful exercise where statutory agencies are working together with the licensed and taxi trades to make sure that Gloucester City Centre is safe and feels safe on a Friday and Saturday night," he said.
"In the public consultation, 71 per cent of night clubbers said that they felt safe or very safe in Gloucester at night and enjoyed the atmosphere there.
"Violent crime at night in Gloucester has dropped for the second year running and we want to make sure that the trend continues."
