THE people of Andover came together during the half-term holidays for an exciting and imaginative event that enthralled families and businesses alike.

The Andover Block Hunt, organised by the Andover Business Improvement District (BID), turned the town centre into a vibrant Lego-brick road of creativity, discovery, and family fun.

Twenty businesses took part in the Andover Block Hunt, transforming their shop windows into colourful and characterful visions of Lego loveliness.

Each display featured Lego characters representing well-known local business figures, adding a delightful twist to the traditional scavenger hunt.

Andover Advertiser: Families enjoying the Lego trail in Andover over half termKatie Tricker, from Andover BID, said: “We thoroughly enjoyed creating an event that pulled the local community together with local businesses, and would like to thank all those who participated, and all the businesses who revelled in the creation of their Lego characters with good humour." 

Groups of adults and children took part in the trail, following clever (and not so clever) clues and seeking out these Lego personalities hidden throughout the town. 

Building on connections with other organisations the whole town centre took on the ‘Lego’ theme, providing a variety of activities.

BID has thanked Test Valley Borough Council at the Chantry Centre, The Andover Museum, Andover Library, the leisure centre and The Chapel Arts Studio (CAS Community) for running the additional creative events as part of the half-term fun.

The Andover Block Hunt wasn’t just about fun and game - it was an opportunity for families and friends to come together, celebrate local businesses, and explore the town centre.

BID has said that the response from both businesses and families was overwhelming.

By following the trail, participants were able to complete their entry forms to be included in the grand finale of a prize draw - with the prize being a £100 voucher to be spent in participating town centre businesses.
