New Lego Club to start in December
A new activity aimed at children local to Bordon aged between 5 – 11 is being launched by Beacon Church, with support from The Whitehill & Bordon Regeneration Company.
Due to begin on 9 December 2018 and occur on the second Sunday of each month between 11am – 12.15pm, ‘Lego Heroes’ is a club organised and run by Beacon Church, with support from volunteers and The Whitehill & Bordon Regeneration Company.
The new club will be based in the Phoenix Theatre and is aimed at children aged between 5 – 11, with adults also encouraged to join in with the activities. Parents and carers will be provided with hot drinks, food and access to a range of Sunday papers.
The club has been created by Beacon Church following the success of their Lego station at a previous event, Gamesfest, which saw residents enjoying a variety of board and card games. The club is aimed at providing another form of community engagement and family-friendly fun.
As well as providing a safe, warm and social space in which to free play, build and create with Lego, the team of volunteers will also introduce a broad faith theme each month which the children will be encouraged to recreate with dioramas or ‘speed builds’.
Naomi Metcalfe, community development officer for The Whitehill & Bordon Regeneration Company, says: “This is another really exciting initiative from Beacon Church. The Lego Heroes club has been created following high demand from community members that attended the Gamesfest day. We’re pleased to support this event, which we hope will engage local families in a social and creative activity.”
Dom Clarke, Beacon Church’s pastor, commented: “Beacon are really excited to offer Lego Heroes as our latest community offering for families in Bordon. Beacon is, perhaps, not your typical church. We are always trying to find new and interesting ways to build community, celebrate life and generally encourage creativity in Bordon regardless of whether people have faith, none, or are just not sure. Beacon is an organisation that anyone can be a part of, offering great value, top quality activities. Lego Heroes is free to attend and for parents who come we offer free refreshments, Sunday papers and a chance to relax and chat. We look forward to seeing lots of local residents come and join us”
