SET FAIR FOR SUMMER?
Brigg town councillors will meet representatives of Brigg District Lions tomorrow to discuss the organisation's request for funding towards the cost of resurrecting Brigg Fair in August.
By Brigg Fair we mean the sideshows, stalls and street entertainment - not the buying and selling of horses by travellers and gypsies.
The council is very likely to exclude the press and public for the talks with the Lions, which form part of a meeting of the policy committee in the Angel Suite lounge (from 7.30pm).
Our picture shows the fair when the event was organised by the Brigg Upgraded Summer Society. Last summer there was no summer fair, although the horse trading still went ahead, organised by the travelling community, and drawing a big crowd, as always.
