Every Tuesday during term time, children are invited to the Terence Brown Arc in Hermit Road Park to enjoy the classic past-time.

The Danish toy was created more than 80 years ago, and was designed as an educational toy to develop creative thinking and logic skills.

The club is for five to ten-year-olds and takes place from 3.30 until 5pm, and will include lego competitions and projects.

Children must register during their first attendance of the club.

The lego club is the latest addition to AAA’s extra-curricular schedule, which includes a Saturday arts and crafts and adventure playground club, a Sunday lunch club for the elderly, and a cycling club.

Last month, the charity opened a £3,000 computer suite, thanks to a donation from the London Freemasons.
