Wasn't Elizabeth Court in Brigg - on the Springbank Estate - named after Her Majesty The Queen when built by Brigg Urban District Council in the 1950s or early 1960s?
If so, shouldn't this be some sort of focal point for Diamond Jubilee celebrations in early June?
Ownership of the Court passed from the UDC to Glanford Borough Council in 1974, then on to North Lincolnshire Council. Latterly, "council housing" has been managed by North Lincolnshire Homes.
Elizabeth Court properties have been refurbished quite recently.
Leaving that aside, how Brigg will celebrate the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee celebrations in June will become must clearer after a public meeting on Wednesday (January 25) at the Angel Suite (7.30pm).
There’s an open invitation for anyone, or any group/organisation, to attend if interested.
Councillor Ben Nobbs chaired the initial meeting earlier this month, which was very well-supported. Indeed, surprisingly well-supported, given that apathy often reigns in respect of public forums.
Those present drew up a long list of possible events to be held in the town centre and at the Recreation Ground, off Wrawby Road.
Various inquiries will have been made over the past couple of weeks - by individuals and groups - and we expect much “reporting back” during Wednesday night’s get-together.
If you are planning to go along, it will be necessary to use the rear “Rotunda” entrance to the Angel Suite, close to the council car park.
Hope very much to see you there!
