TIME TO REFLECT ON THE CLOCKMAKERS OF OLD BRIGG


A very interesting evening is in prospect for those who attend the next monthly get-together of Brigg Amateur Social Historians (BASH).

He will speak to BASH on Tuesday, February 3 at the Servicemen's Club, Coney Court (8pm).
Admission is free, light refreshments will be served and a raffle held to help towards costs.
The club adjoins the town’s main car park.

BETTER BRIGG TRAFFIC FLOWS ON WAY


We think the closure of Brigg pelican crossings, which is under way at present, may be linked to the new traffic light control system which North Lincolnshire Council is installing to improve the flow of vehicles along the A18 Barnard Avenue.
Yesterday (Sunday) the pelican near the China Garden was switched off and the one near the Methodist Church cordoned off, as our picture shows.

They appear to have finished with the pelican near the vets – at the top of Old Courts Road – which is now back in use.

BRIGG GROUP BACK AT THE WHITE HORSE PUB

BLOOMING GOOD TURNOUT OF SUNDAY SHOPPERS IN BRIGG

It was very busy in the Lidl store on Atherton Way, Brigg, this afternoon.
Great shopper attention was being paid to an array of flowers/bulbs on a stand just outside the entrance.

It really is proving a very successful location for Lidl since the move from the old riverside premises near Spring's Parade.
