Brigg Amateur Social Historians' first speaker of the new year will be Elly Dolan, whose presentation "Sing to Win" will include original radio broadcasts from the war years. It's described as a patriotic WW2 show featuring all the old songs that helped to win the war.
Put a date in your diary/mobile phone/Outlook events list now for Tuesday, January 5 to enjoy Elly's presentation at Brigg Servicemen's Club, Coney Court (8pm).
The next BASH meeting - on Tuesday, December 1 - will be a talk on the Lincolnshire Times weekly newspaper which ran from 1867-1985, editorial offices being at 57 Wrawby Street (next to the archway now leading into the Exchange Coach House Inn). That also starts at 8pm and the speaker is "Yours Truly" - as I was on the paper's staff and (after departing for the Scunthorpe Telegraph) continued to contribute content on a freelance basis until the paper sadly closed.
Admission to BASH meetings - held on the first Tuesday of each month - is free. So pop along to enjoy a nostalgic night out.
And finally...a reminder about the next BASH ghost walk around Brigg, which will be on Sunday, November 29, starting from the Nelthorpe Arms, Bridge Street (7.30pm). Tickets are £3 each - available from Brigg Tourist Information Centre, in the Buttercross. Telephone (01652) 657053.
