Today is International Women's Day. A global day to celebrate the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of all women. A day to acknowledge that we are better together, and call for #BalanceforBetter in accelerating gender parity.
Today we acknowledge the women around the world who have inspired, mentored and cheered us on in our journey. They have come from all walks of life. They champion ideas, campaigns and people. They support, love and believe in others. They help to grow ideas, movements and inspire change.
We too acknowledge the men who champion and support women, and campaign for women.
Because of you, all of you, we are richer. Thank you!

Today is the last day to get along to Brickvention 2019!
Tickets are available from the Brickvention website here: www.brickventures.com
This build is one of hundreds of original builds on display - many with a historical focus. The build by Miles Russell looks at the Battle of Salamanca which occurred in 1812.
One of our highlights of Brickvention each year is the big train display by the Melbourne L-Gauge Train Club. All made from LEGO this big working train set wanders through scenes, towns and over bridges! The farm scene in this build was made by Janco Heunis, and the grain silo in the background by Sarah Brennan-Dunn.
Don't forget Brickvention is open for the final day tomorrow. You can purchase your ticket here: www.brickventures.com
