Members of Cirencester Soroptimist Club enjoyed acting as stewards for the building, using 70,000 Lego Bricks of model of the Lego Abbey model, now completed.

Friday mornings, from April 17 to October 18 , were a stimulating combination of meeting, greeting and informing members of our local community of all ages, as well as visitors from many parts of the U.K. and the world, whilst following the building instructions for the Abbey to keep it growing. 12 club members were delighted to give a total of 300 hours of their time to the Project and have made many new friends during the build.

At the start of the Abbey 900 celebration year Cirencester Soroptimists provided some of the sponsorship to enable rare and beautiful Medieval Manuscripts to be returned to Cirencester, where they were originally written at the Abbey, and to be displayed in the Corinium Museum.

The club was awarded a model of the Abbey in recognition of
our sponsorship for the return of the medieval manuscripts as part of Abbey 900.

It has been a privilege forSI Cirencester to support the ‘Abbey 900’ Festival, an outstanding Community Project.
