The Lego finds a home

By johnboy - 23 October 2012 11

lego handover

Having completed the Lego Challenge everyone wants to know what we’re doing with the vast tubs of donated Lego.

Today at Duxton I handed the tubs over to Gerry Satrapa (pictured right) who’s going to use them for teaching animation next year at Copland College.

Many thanks to our generous Lego donors, the election candidates who participated, the bars which played host (especially our house bar Duxton), and the readers who came down during the challenges to say hello.

What’s Your opinion?

Is the owl not a self portrait of stanhope himself?

So the Lego has gone from children who outgrew it, to College students, after passing through the eager hands of politicians. I wonder what it makes of it? You could do an animation with a piece of Lego as the narrator, sitting back, boring the young fresh Lego to death.

Not a use I expected, but it fits in well with the Pirate Party’s desire to encourage creativity, thus I approve of your decision.

Hopefully we’ll see the Lego again one day, remixed by the creative minds of tomorrow.

Next version of Sim City released next year. Hopefully they’ll have the bugs out of it by 2016 and you can go back to that!

No, no, no. Lego beats virtual cities any day. It’s real, you know…bricks and mortar. Without the mortar.

But we may all be dead by 2016.

I hear they are contemplating a new Lodge. Some could suggest that the Lego could have been used in the construction of a house befitting the Prime Minister. The Lego Lodge has a certain to ring to it, not that I would want to throw bricks at the PM.
