With the year we’ve all had, Blocks would like to share a message with every LEGO fan who has supported us over the last 12 months.
This is a message to every single person who subscribes to Blocks, buys the occasional issue or just tells other LEGO fans about what we do.
2020 has been a challenging year for everyone. It’s been really hard. With all of the difficulties we have faced, the most immediate being concerns about the health of our families, friends, communities and selves, then on top of that the huge knock-on impact on businesses, employment and income, there has been a lot of uncertainty and worry.
When all of the shops in the UK and many other countries around the world closed, reduced their hours and became more difficult to visit, Silverback Publishing put in place a plan to make sure that LEGO fans could still get their monthly magazine to provide a bit of a break and be a welcome distraction. I feel very thankful that we have people behind us who were ready to make that happen.
The biggest thank you I want to give though is to you, our readers. When you couldn’t get Blocks from the shops, you came online to order individual copies or subscriptions. You didn’t just shrug and forget about Blocks, you came to our website and placed an order. We’ve even had people buying up every back issue we have in stock!
Your support means that Blocks will continue to bring you a monthly LEGO fix that you can only get in the pages of this magazine.
Thank you again for your support. It really does mean the world to everyone here. We love putting this magazine together for you and are delighted that we are in an excellent position to continue to do so.
If you know someone else who would love the magazine or hasn’t checked it out in a while, be sure to let them know what they’re missing out on!
2020 has been a tough year, and there might be more tough times to come, but a bit of LEGO can help brighten the gloomiest of times – and there will be better days at the other side of this.
I hope everyone has a wonderful Christmas and New Year. In case I haven’t stressed this enough; thank you.
P.S. I can’t wait for you to see Issue 75, we have some fantastic features lined up! Did you know a certain theme is 10 years old in 2021? Who knows what we’ve lined up to celebrate that…
