Lego model of intu Potteries and the Hive on display…

Submitted by on March 9, 2016 – 6:10 am |


intu Potteries lego display Feb 16It all started with an Instagram post from a proud Dad, Jim Flowers (onedadoneblog), of his son Harrison, 4 years old, who had built a model of intu Potteries out of his favourite hobby, Lego.

Following talks we thought it would great for shoppers to see Harrison’s masterpiece. Harrison very kindly agreed that we could display his Lego in the glass cubes in the centre and that he would also make us a model of the Hive, the centre’s brand new leisure development which includes seven restaurants and a cinema. The deal was that in exchange we would replace his used Lego, which we happily supplied for him. We also were able to offer Harrison a visit with his Dad to the Lego Discovery Centre at intu Trafford Centre and to meet a Lego builder, to which he was over the moon.

Harrison’s masterpiece now has pride of place on the upper mall outside Vodafone for shoppers to see. When Harrison and his Dad visited the centre during half term he loved seeing his creation on display.

Sandrine Rutter, Marketing Manager at intu Potteries said “When we saw the post with a photo of intu Potteries made of Lego we immediately fell in love with it and thought it would look great in the centre. Thank you to Harrison and his Dad for allowing us to do this.”
