Rhyncosaur Day Success




Families admire the completed mosaic


Fairlynch’s Lego Dinosaur Day on 28 August was a great success, with 40 children busily making a two-dimensional model of a Rhynchosaur.   

A life-size version of the strange dog-like creature which lived 240 million years ago was lent by Clinton Devon Estates and had pride of place on the Museum lawn for the day.  Bones from the Rhyncosaur were found in the cliffs between Budleigh and Sidmouth in the late 19th century.
























Bright Bricks expert Joe Perez, seen above, was on hand to give advice. The organisation is one of the world’s most inventive design companies, creating unique models, mosaics and events from LEGO bricks. 


 
The day concluded with the creation of a large mosaic model on the lawn, with each child receiving a limited edition Rynchosaur Lego kit. 

The event raised £415 for the Museum, and was featured in the Budleigh Journal
