BRIGG WW1 EXHIBITION AT HERITAGE CENTRE WELL WORTH A VISIT


Brigg folk really must pay a visit to the impressive exhibition at the Heritage Centre, in the Angel complex, off the Market Place, which was officially opened on Monday at a tea-time ceremony attending by guests and pupils and staff from Sir John Nelthorpe School, who have been working very hard to find out about people from Brigg our area who served their country during World War One.
There were poppies available to be bought at the launch, which helped to get across the importance of remembering those who have served - many making the ultimate sacrifice.






BRIGG PUB KEEPS HOME FIRES BURNING

Passing the Nelthorpe Arms (Scanlon's) pub in Brigg last night, with a gale blowing down Bridge Street, we glanced through a window and were delighted to see a coal fire burning in the grate.
There's nothing quite like a quiet pint beside a real fire. Unless, of course, you are the person charged with cleaning the grate, bringing in the coal and getting things lit.

WORTHY CAUSE DESERVING BRIGG PEOPLE'S SUPPORT ON SATURDAY

There's a fundraiser coming up at Brigg Town Football Club on Saturday to help a Brigg man who is not in the best of health and a renowned national charity. It's to be hoped local people turn out in force to lend their support at The Hawthorns.

This will take place in the town centre, in conjunction with the monthly farmers’ market.

BRIGG BAR PRICES - ALL ABOARD!


This A-board lists the beer prices at the Exchange Coach House Inn within Brigg town centre.
We’ve previously reported £2.20p for a pint of Coors and Worthington’s, having tried them both at this venue.
The display seen here adds the going rate for John Smith’s, Carling and Guinness – all £3 a pint.


BRIGG BUNTING HANGING IN THERE




Further to our recent post about some of the summer season bunting in  Brigg town centre finally dropping to ground level, here’s a picture taken on Sunday morning which shows some still in situ and some that’s become detached. 
We took the view before the wind really got up, the result of which may be more bunting came down to earth.

WHY BRIGG BLOG MISSED SATURDAY NIGHT OUT IN TOWN

For those wondering about the absence of the usual Brigg Blog Saturday night pub report  we should explain that we were in Messingham, attending a 50th birthday party being held for our friend Mick Smith, the former Brigg Town Cricket Club  all-rounder.
We got back to town too late to nip out for a pint and settled, instead, for a takeaway from the China Garden. Very good it was, too.
Normal service should be resumed this coming Saturday night. We hope.
