A new north-east children’s club is attracting hundreds of new members as a resurgence in of the popular toy Lego continues.
The Buchan Builders club was launched in Peterhead last year, and over the weekend more than 200 people gathered at Port Errol Hall in Cruden Bay for a day of building block fun.
The aim of the club is to help children learn creative and problem solving skills with their friends, and has already proven wildly popular.
Last night club founder Darren Noble said: “We had two large displays by a master builder Steve Locke. Theses displays are made from thousands and thousands of pieces and take weeks to build.
“We had a huge self build area where the kids and land some adults had hours of fun building.”
Mr Noble described the event as a “great success” and added that the club hope to host another Lego day in the village soon due to demand.
“Our Facebook page is getting a constant messages from people wanting us to take the club to them,” said Mr Noble. “We are hoping to take Buchan Builders on tour across the whole north-east to try and include as many people as possible.”
The Lego brand, founded in Denmark by Ole Kirk Christiansen in 2932 – is enjoying a renaissance following the release of the Lego Movie in 2014.
The Buchan Builders are hosting an event in the village of St Combs on Saturday. For more information on the club, visit www.facebook.com/peterheadlego
