Suffolk libraries have been promoting the benefits of the humble Lego brick as a fun activity which parents and children can enjoy together.

Lego clubs have started at a dozen libraries in the county, where they are reported to have proved popular with both children and adults.

Suffolk Libraries says Lego encourages creativity and problem-solving skills, and has helped involve more boys in library activities.

A new Lego Club has been running at Southwold Library on Sundays, between 12.15pm and 1pm. A spokesman for Southwold Library said: 'Open to kids (and adults) of all ages, in November we're building Spectacular Spacecraft. All donations of Lego are welcome, and if any adults would like to help with Lego Club, just ask staff.'

As well as Southwold, clubs are held at libraries including Beccles – on the third Sunday of the month, Bungay - one Saturday per month, Halesworth - on Sundays every two weeks and Oulton Broad – every other Sunday.
