HOW ABOUT SOME BRIGG NOMINATIONS?

North Lincolnshire Council is gearing up for the fourth Community Champion Awards to be held 26 November 2015 at the Baths Hall in Scunthorpe.
Nominations open Monday 1 June. You can nominate at www.northlincs.gov.uk/champion or contact Sport, Leisure and Culture for a nomination form.
Perhaps you know someone who deserves an award for the time they have dedicated to volunteering  or to recognise their personal achievement in overcoming barriers or excelling in a sport or the arts. 
Is there a community group that deserves recognition for its work in the local community? 
Or do you know someone who is a true inspiration to others?
Then get in touch and nominate them.
There’s a choice of 22 categories under four main areas: Achievement (eight categories); Volunteers (three categories); Community (seven categories), and Inspiration (four categories). Details of the categories are available at www.northlincs.gov.uk/champion
Winners will receive a trophy and certificate; runner-up will receive a certificate – at an award ceremony later in the year. 
Coun John Briggs, cabinet member for Assets, Culture and Housing at North Lincolnshire Council, said: “There is an enormous sense of pride in these awards. They recognise the fantastic work achieved by many people. All too often, we don’t shout loud enough about our achievements and these awards ensure that people are rewarded for their incredible work they do.
“Nominations are now open and it is easy to nominate. If you know of anyone who deserves a pat on the back – whether it’s for a personal achievement, inspiration to others, work they have done to help their local community or volunteered their services for a good cause, please nominate them. After all that’s what these awards are all about.”
For more details about the awards contact Community Recreation on 01724 297270 or email: community.recreation@northlincs.gov.uk.
N.F. adds: We went along to one of these award ceremonies a few years ago at Ancholme Leisure Centre, near Brigg, and thoroughly enjoyed it. Some very worthy people were rewarded for their community spirit.

BRIGG SHOULD BE GRATEFUL FOR SERVICES RENDERED

The Brigg Town Council election is now some way behind us and we think it's time to reflect on former councillors who are no longer on the authority.
Coun The Rev Alec Depledge did not seek re-election and retired. However, Couns John Kitwood, Jenny Bell, Lesley Whitehand, Jackie Brock, Andrew Markham, Chris Dyson and Edward Arnott put their names forward - all being unsuccessful when townsfolk when to the polls.
Their length of service vary but collectively add up to many, many years. Some have chaired Town Council committees and there are ex-Mayors among them.
Brigg Blog will miss seeing them all during meetings and reporting their comments. The twon should be grateful for the services they rendered to the community, in an unpaid capacity.
That being said, we are looking forward very much to covering meetings of today's Town Council with its influx of new members, some of whom we already knew . 
If you missed the election result, here's a link
