The Brigg shop vacated by the Lindsey Lodge Hospice some months ago is being converted, the charity having moved to larger premises further along Wrawby Street.
It will be good to see these premises, in a prominent spot next to the Buttercross, back in use again. 
It seems a very long time since Hounslow's occupied the shop!
Cliff Turner, former Brigg resident now living in New Zealand, has emailed us to say: "Yes, it is a long time since Eli Hounslow, wholesale tobacconist, had the premises between W H Smith and the Town Hall."
He has memories of Eli’s huge dog, often to be seen lying on the pavement outside the shop.
How many Brigg Blog followers remember it?
