Colleagues planning memorial to murdered Bristol woman Joanna Yeates
Former work colleagues of murdered landscape architect Joanna Yeates are planning a series of lasting memorials to remember her.
She worked at the Bristol office of design firm BDP, alongside her boyfriend Greg Reardon, 27.
The firm is planning to create a small garden of remembrance at its Bristol studio, sponsor an annual landscape design prize in her memory for students at the University of Gloucestershire's School of Landscape and Environment, where she studied, create a book of remembrance to include an anthology of the 25-year-old's work, and dedicate a charity cycle ride between the firm's UK offices, which forms part of the BDP's 50th anniversary celebrations.
The proceeds from the sponsorship will go to charities of her family's choice.

Announcing the memorials, Keith Pavey, head of BDP's Bristol studio, said: "It is now over seven weeks since Jo was so tragically taken from us and it is still difficult to come to terms with her untimely and unnecessary death.
"We have been overwhelmed by the many messages of condolence and sympathy we have received from our clients and colleagues in the construction industry.
"We will not forget Jo and we hope the above will collectively become a lasting tribute to her."
On Monday, Miss Yeates's next-door neighbour Vincent Tabak, 32, made his third court appearance since he was charged with her murder.
The Dutch engineer, who works at Buro Happold in Bath, was remanded into custody until a plea and case management hearing at Bristol Crown Court on May 4.
A provisional trial date was also fixed for October 4.
Miss Yeates disappeared on Friday December 17 after going for Christmas drinks with colleagues.
Mr Reardon reported her missing after he returned to Bristol on December 19 following a weekend away visiting family in Sheffield.
The university graduate's frozen body was found dumped on a verge in Longwood Lane, Failand, North Somerset, on Christmas Day, three miles from her home in Canynge Road, Clifton.
Miss Yeates's landlord Chris Jefferies, 66, was also arrested on suspicion of murder before being released on bail.
Police say Mr Jefferies' position remains unchanged despite Tabak being charged with her murder.
Her parents, David and Theresa Yeates, from Ampfield, Hampshire, are organising her funeral.
