Brigg Blog was very sorry to hear of the death of Coun Ben Nobbs - a former Town Mayor and member of Brigg Town Council.
Ben, whose hard work over many years within the local youth service was well-known across North Lincolnshire, chaired the Brigg Town Council Planning Committee for some time.
He was also a driving force in organising the town's extensive celebrations to mark the Queen's Diamond Jubilee - the memorable day being enjoyed by hundreds of people who turned out for varied events and entertainment in the town centre and the Recreation Ground.
A keen supporter of the Brigg Matters newsletter, Coun Ben was always a "hands on" councillor, undertaking a range of duties, including attending to the poppies on the Monument war memorial after Remembrance Day.
He represented the town council on various "outside bodies" and his reports on meetings he attended, delivered to fellow members, were always thorough and to the point.
The funeral will be held at 10am on Wednesday 7th January at Woodlands Crematorium, Scunthorpe.
