A FORMER Cross Roads man is bringing some colour to a flood-hit community.

Mark Pullen – and his partner Debbie Adamthwaite – are staging a Lego community brick show in a village devastated by the Boxing Day floods of 2015.

Venue for the February 4 event is Mytholmroyd Community & Leisure Centre, which was under eight feet of water during the deluge.

"When the floods swept the valleys of the Aire, Calder and Worth we were on the east coast with little or no internet access or TV reception so were oblivious to the damage," said Mr Pullen, an ex-member of Haworth, Cross Roads and Stanbury Parish Council.

"It was only later in the week that the extent of the disaster became clear. Many residents, businesses and community groups were reeling from the deluge."

The couple, who run a Bricks4Kidz business, have been planning the Calder Valley Community Brick Show for almost a year.

And they promise the district's biggest ever display of Lego model builds.

The event will run from 11am to 5pm, with last entry at 4pm.

Admission is £2.50, cash only, at the door. But tickets can be pre-booked at b4k.eventbrite.com, with all profits being donated to the charity which manages the centre.
