I visited Durham Cathedral yesterday. While the Cathedral is very grand and imposing, I was more interested in the LEGO recreation they are building. They are building a model of the Cathedral in LEGO as a fundraiser. You buy a LEGO brick for £1 and you can even add it yourself. The model will be composed of 350,000 bricks. Even more fascinating is they had to hire special LEGO modellers to create the plans, Bright Bricks is the company. Bright Bricks send the volunteers extremely detailed instructions on where to place every brick. The instructions look like the type of thing you get with your Ikea flatpack. Bright Bricks also created the model of the Titanic Visitor Centre.
I help to manage Slugger by taking care of the site as well as running our live events. My background is in business, marketing and IT. My politics tend towards middle-of-the-road pragmatism, I am not a member of any political party. Oddly for a member of the Slugger team, I am not that interested in daily politics, preferring to write about big ideas in society. When not stuck in front of a screen, I am a parkrun Run Director.
