Torbay residents of all abilities can build new friendships at a newly-launched Lego Club set up with funding from Sanctuary Housing.
The new club at Great Parks Community Centre in Paignton is seeking Lego enthusiasts to come together and share their hobby. The ethos of the club is for the participants to work together and learn from each other, with residents from all walks of life invited to attend.
People of any age are welcome to come along (under 14s must be accompanied by an adult) with the focused activity being to build models and share Lego knowledge in a relaxed environment. A supply of Lego bricks is available at the club, but residents can also bring along their own Lego creations.
16-year-old Jude, who helped to set up and advertise the Lego Club, said: “The first week went really well. I really enjoyed helping to organise the club, Lego is one of my main interests and it’s great that I can now share it with people of lots of different ages.”
Sanctuary’s neighbourhood partnerships manager, Lynne Roberts, added: “We want to encourage all of our residents to pursue their interests and lead fulfilled lives, and the Lego Club is giving us a great opportunity to do that.”
The Lego Club takes place every Monday from 6 - 7.30pm at Great Parks Community Centre on Queen Elizabeth Drive. Anyone who is interested can just turn up to any of the free sessions or for more information call 01803 524903.
This project is funded by Sanctuary’s Community Investment Fund, supporting projects which benefit Sanctuary residents and their communities.
