Bricktober 2016

Bricktober 2016 has come and gone, and it was a fantastic event! There were many brilliant displays filling up two halls, lots of LEGO sets for sale and plenty to keep the kids occupied!
 
I wish to express a big thank you to Stephen and Joanna Kendall for organising Bricktober, the Rotary Club of Ascot, their volunteers and fellow exhibitors for making this such a great exhibition!


Here are some photos:
