That's a rare happening these days!

We recognised some Briggensians FC regulars, too, together with one or two familiar faces from Brigg Town Cricket Club.

BRAVING THE ELEMENTS IN BRIGG

The wild, wet and windy weather encountered in Brigg  on Saturday led to an interesting sighting.
We are told that an open top bus came through, heading off towards Caistor.
A good many of us got a soaking just walking to the pub. On a bus, open to the elements, in early February? Brrr!

NOTTS LANDING IN BRIGG

Listen out for Nottinghamshire accents in Brigg town centre next time you are out shopping on a Saturday.
On Twitter, Paul Johnson, of the Friends of the Brigg & Lincoln Line railway support group, has shared a picture of one of the posters on display in Worksop.
Folk from the Notts town can buy an adult return train ticket to Brigg for just £11.10p.
That seems top value to Brigg Blog, and we trust there will be plenty of takers.

BRIGG JOB ON OFFER AT NEW RESTAURANT

 

Now serving meals, the Britannia Inn, on Wrawby Street, Brigg, is looking for a part-time cook/chef.

Due to a manic working week, Brigg Blog hasn't had time to pop in for a bite to eat since they launched the menu on Monday.
