New Year …. A new dawn. @ipg_the

As the sun rises in 2021, we can reflect on some of the positive changes that the previous year has brought to our lives, one of which is an appreciation of the local independent business, within our community, that has always been there, but we haven’t always supported. However, we have now realised that they are competitively priced, friendly, and informative and often more flexible than their larger competitors willing to adopt new ways to transact and communicate with existing and new customers.


LOVELL HOMES has held a development launch with a difference by giving local house hunters the chance to ask their burning questions about the buying process, whilst getting an exclusive sneak peek at the brand-new Roman Heights development in Cockermouth – all from the comfort of their own home.

What every child wants for Christmas: support designs for an official ‘Basement & Sewerage’ LEGO set

Fan-designed “Basement & Sewerage” model on LEGO IDEAS needs 10,000 votes for a chance to become the first sewerage-themed LEGO set ever! To support:

Over decades LEGO has released thousands of sets covering an innumerable amount of themes – but there’s never been a realistic sewerage-themed set. A fan designer is aiming to change that now.

LEGO IDEAS is an online platform where fan builders can submit their own models. Once the voting phase starts, they aim for gaining as many ‘supporters’ as possible, trying to reach the ultimate goal of 10,000 votes. Only a few projects make it this far and advance to the ‘Review’ stage, getting the chance of being released as an official LEGO IDEAS retail set – granted the jury deems the model exceptional and well-made, suitable for the brand and marketable.
