our lego wall

On the third floor of Fruit Towers, we once had a very dull wall in need of more than just a lick of paint. So behold - our lego wall.

It took 2 days, 77 baseplates (2 were binned), a 5 minute queue outside Homebase until it opened and 6 litres of very stinky adhesive to put it all together. We feared no one would do any real work once we had it but its okay - after about 10 minutes, your thumbs get sore from pushing lego into the wall so you stop playing. 

Sam did a bit of maths and worked out there are about 160,000 teeny tiny lego studs on the wall.

Here are some photos of how it was built and some army men.

With Christmas around the corner, every workplace needs its very own Santa's Grotto - Fruit Towers' comes complete with two neon reindeer, picket fencing and fairy lights.

Santa is yet to arrive but in the meantime, Steve has affectionately named it the 'elf and sleighfty cabin' (despite the lack of health and safety material inside it) and it is now everyone's favourite spot for meetings.


Here at Fruit Towers, we've got a big walk-in fridge crammed full of smoothies and juice. Sometimes, people don't leave it in the state it should be left in (tut tut). So, we've had a (not so) high-tech cctv system installed. With the eye of cc-smoo-v casting down on them, hopefully people will now take their rubbish away  and not leave the place in a mess.


And even if it doesn't work, it shows just how much fun you can have with an empty kids' smoothies box and an old loo roll tube. Make your own and stick it over the cupboard if you want to make sure your Christmas chocolates don't all get stolen before the big day.
