|The entrance to College Yard, off Old Courts Road, is one earmarked to benefit from one of the arches.|
Brigg Town Business Partnership says it is continually looking for ways to attract and increase the numbers of visitors to the town, with plans already in hand to produce leaflets as well as business information boards at key locations.
Another initiative that the Brigg Town Business Partnership has been developing with Scunthorpe's North Lindsey College, and North Lincolnshire Council, is to have arches over the Courtyard entrances, making a gateway into the main areas of the town.
The arches will be at the entrances to the Old Courts, from Old Courts car park, leading people from the car park, via the Courts, to the centre of the town. The Courts are defined as Coney Court, School Yard, College Yard and Chapel Court.
Andrew says: “Brigg Town Business Partnership is keen to work with businesses and local residents to promote the town and the wide range of attractions on offer. The partnership has been working with North Lindsey College on the idea of installing arches, to promote the history of the Courts, and students have prepared designs. It is for residents to decide if they wish to take this innovative idea forward and I hope that we can work together to continue to promote the town.”
The designs will be available to view at an event on Friday 24th July, 5.30pm for 6.00pm, in the Buttercross, Brigg (above the Tourist Information Office). A light buffet will be provided.
If you would like to attend, please contact Robert Lingard on 01405 767969 or email firstname.lastname@example.org not later than Monday 20th July.
Brigg Blog, and others, no doubt, have received personal invitations from our MP to attend. Meanwhile, Coun Jane Kitching, who is an official of the Business Partnership, has asked us to stress that the public of Brigg are being consulted and will be welcome to go along and view the plans. Room is limited at the Buttercross. So if you are interested, be sure to let the organisers know you wish to attend.
