Long time Lego® enthusiasts, and Ascot Rotarians, Stephen and Joanna Kendall have a passion for all things Lego®.

Both having grown up with LEGO®, they have together visited 6 Legoland® parks and participated in The LEGO® INSIDE TOUR, they both enjoy sharing the hobby.  The Kendall’s love of LEGO® has prompted them to put their energies towards the inception of Bricktober – Perth.
