Happy New Year ! 2018 was a fantastic year for Brick Central and our members, we had a super start by being fortunate enough to be granted “recognised” status by The LEGO group. With Brick Central becoming an RLUG this gives us a direct link with LEGO through the LEGO Ambassador Network.
This has opened up many more opportunities for our members to be involved in exciting projects and receive unique benefits.
Brick Central has seen some of our incredibly talented members organise a number of shows this year, through their hard work they have raised substantial amounts for their chosen charities.
We feel that it was incredibly generous and honourable of them and we would like to thank them very much for their efforts this year. So a HUGE thank you to…
Neil Burgess– Cobblers Bricks- Children with Downs Syndrome
Darren Neely– Wares The Bricks- Essex and Herts Air Ambulance
Paul Clark– Black Country Bricks- Birmingham Childrens Hospital
Nick Amos– Bristol Bricks- CLIC Sargent
Our AGM was also held to bring our members together, so we were able to discuss many topics that affect our LUG as mature adults, finding appropriate solutions along the way. We ratified the new constitution (which can be read HERE) and decided on a fair way to elect the new committee, being as inclusive as possible.
Through our discussions and as our member base has increased over the last twelve months, we realised more help was needed from our members on the committee and added some important new roles to help in specific areas.
We conducted the election process recently to allow our members to decide who serves on the committee and we’re very pleased to announce the new Brick Central committee is as follows:
Chairperson – Ian J Kimpton
Ambassador – Mike Freeman
Treasurer – Iestyn Pocock
Member’s Secretary – Ann Khan
Meetings Secretary – Kavan Wilkinson
Events Coordinator – David Tabner
Social Media Secretary – Rhys Knight
Website Coordinator – Jason Mario Marriott
We feel that having more talented people on board will really benefit Brick Central in all areas. Thank you to everyone that participated in the election process to be a member of the committee. We look forward to 2019 and the new committee working closely together for the benefit of the LUG and all our members.

A happy and prosperous New Year to you all.
