Robbie Williams impressed by West Norfolk pupil's Lego project

One Gaywood pupil was delighted to receive a response from a famous English singer after building a Lego project in honour of the star.

Robbie Williams, who rose to prominence through Take That, was taken aback by the efforts of Howard Junior School pupil Callum Boldero.

The nine-year-old pupil has been described as a "Lego fanatic" whose latest project was to build the stage and concert arena from Mr Williams' headlining act at Hyde Park in July.

As part of the project, Callum included a giant working video screen, Lego figure of Robbie Williams and lights.

Headteacher Greg Hill said: "Callum builds amazing large-scale Lego projects, sometimes with the help of his father Chris.

"In fact, it fills a special room in the house like something from LEGOLAND."

After Callum's mother sent a video of the year-5 pupil's latest effort to Mr Williams' Twitter account, the star was quick to reply.

He said: "Now that's genuinely epic....take a bow son x"

Mr Hill added: "We were so thrilled we held a special assembly at Howard and showed Callum's model to pupils and the tweet from Robbie. We were all delighted!"
