Berowra Uniting Church is returning to Cowra on March 17 with its Lego exhibition.

This year new pieces such as the Taj Mahal and a Disney Castle will be among the extensive collection of Lego on display.

Some Cowra people, having been inspired by last year’s display, are keen to show off their own talents as Lego builders, bringing their own Lego models to add to this year’s exhibition.

Children aged from preschool to Year 6 are encouraged to enter the Lego competition.

They can build their own original piece or make the set presentation straight from the box.

The entries are to be brought in to the Wesley Centre, Darling Street, between 5pm and 7pm March 17.

Jack Galvin, Leuwin McGill and Ted Galvin have a go at last year's Lego exhibition.

Entry for the competition is $4 and entry into the exhibition on Saturday is $4 each or $10 for families.

The entry fee will go towards supporting the scripture teacher at Cowra High School. 

Build and race a Lego car on the race track built by Doug Beer and the Men’s Shed, sit and enjoy morning tea or a sausage sandwich from the barbecue lunch, cold drink will be available.

Enter the guessing competition and guess how many Lego bricks are in the model of “the joyful church” built by Rev Annette Hawken.

Don’t miss Sean Bryant’s display of technic models, just a few pieces from his personal collection of Lego including a Lego train and an Eiffel Tower.

Families or individuals are invited to add their Lego models to the exhibition.

If you are an enthusiast and have built a special model, or two, no matter how large or small, we would love to add it to the display.
