AROUND 50 residents gathered in Furzefield to have their say on the design of a community shelter to be built in Potters Bar.
The event, organised by Hertsmere Borough Council and design consultants Superblue, gave people a chance to contribute ideas on how the structure should look.
Organisers brought along three temporary huts, to encourage residents to think about how they might use the shelter.
Cllr Brenda Batten, portfolio holder for leisure, culture and health, described the day as a "real success".
