Lego lovers will have an opportunity to show off their skills at the upcoming inaugural LEGO Building Competition at Ballintubber Resource Centre, Co. Mayo on Wednesday 27 December 27 from 2-4pm.
It is open for children under 12 who must bring their own lego and be sorted into age groups, and will be given 45 minutes to create something in their best interpretation of the theme ‘Build Your Dream Playground’, to bring to life the playground planned for Ballintubber and the wider community.
After the time is up, the judges will choose the top children from each age group to win special prizes. Event organisers – Ballintubber Playground Committee – said it will be a family fun and creative event over the festive season.
Nominations are now open for the 2018 ‘Mayo Person of the Year’, ‘Meitheal of the Year’ and ‘Young Mayo Person of the Year’ Awards, which will be presented at our rebranded Annual Awards Banquet – The Yew Tree Ball – on Saturday 10 February 2018 in Dublin’s Ballsbridge Hotel.
Our Annual Awards Banquet continue to recognise and acknowledge those individuals and organisations who are making a significant difference within our communities.
The ‘Meitheal of the Year Award’ will be sponsored by Connolly Motor Group, and all proceeds raised on the night of the Yew Tree Ball will be in aid of our charity partner – Mayo Mental Health Association.
