First proper Lego memory is building a house with little flowers outside! Me and my younger brother, Paul got the sets for Christmas, he had a police station and I got the cute little house. We went to visit our sister for Boxing Day and spent all our Christmas money on extra Lego stuff in Romford town centre! I bought a horse box and jeep complete with two horses which had dents in the top so the Lego people could ride them.
Proudest Lego build moment came as a mum years ago. I bought my eldest son the Harry Potter Knight Bus and we built it together. It's an impressive piece of kit, a lovely blue/purple colour and three floors high.
If I could design a new Lego figure I'd probably design an eco warrior, a planet lover who can teach everyone to love the world and all its species. He/she could then have different environment sets to do great things in. Maybe I'll pitch it to Lego!
The best part of this job is working on a project everyone loves. Who doesn't love Lego? And to have it so closely tied to the Cathedral is (in the words of Emmett from the Lego Movie) AWESOME!
Three words to describe the project - exciting, universal, fun
People should come for a lot of reasons. I'd like to think they will come to see the Cathedral itself and find out about its history and its work today. I think a model in the cathedral gives the actual Cathedral building itself some sort of scale and I'm sure people will appreciate it.
I'm an excitable person so definitely 10 out of 10 for excitability!
