BRIGG BINS AWAIT WINTER'S WORST
Here's one of the new salt bins allocated to Brigg by North Lincolnshire Council, so residents can "treat" the footpaths during periods of of snow and ice.
Brigg Town Council was asked to suggest suitable locations for three of them and here's one of their selections - Springbank, close to the junction with Grammar School Road.
St Mary's School and the Vale of Ancholme are nearby and Springbank is a major route leading into one of Brigg's main housing estates.
In a scheme overseen by Brigg and Wolds' Coun Nigel Sherwood (Cabinet Member for Highways and Neighbourhoods), North Lincolnshire Council has offered salt bins to parishes throughout the area, provided stockpiles of sale, plus some money that can be used to fund contractors with snow-clearing machinery if the going gets tough.
North Lincolnshire Council came in for widespread criticism last year over its response to the wintry conditions.
Certainly, the snow lay deep and crisp (but not often even) on many main Brigg streets, such as Glebe Road and Churchill Avenue.
