Brigg Heritage Centre is seeking a grant from the Town Council to help with staging future exhibitions.
The application for assistance will be considered at the authority's February meeting  tomorrow  (Monday, February 27) in the Angel Suite (main room) starting at 7.15pm.
The session is open to interested members of the public, who may ask questions (see agenda item 8 below).
The Heritage Centre, housed in the Angel complex, is seeking the grant to enable it to continue staging "pop-up" exhibitions during the coming year "by the purchase of exhibition equipment, stationery items, an A3 laminator, etc."
Pictured above is an exhibition staged some time ago at the Heritage Centre.
On Monday the Town Council will also consider a verbal proposal from  Town Mayor Coun Ann Eardley "that bunting be put up in the town, in response to a suggestion from Brigg Live Arts."
Should this be approved, the council will then "set a financial limit on the installation."
Deputy Town Mayor Coun Sharon Riggall will update fellow councillors about the Enhanced Planting Scheme 2017.
Brigg planning applications to be considered will be:

  • Erect a general purpose builders' merchants' warehouse, Turnbull Timber, Island Carr, off Bridge Street.
  • Erect a single-storey extension, 7 Sunningdale Avenue
(Final decisons on these will be made later by North Lincolnshire Council planners).

Re 12.....Outside bodies...oddly enough, Brigg Matters had a compulsory BTC councillor sitting on the committee.
Other member thought this was contrary to BM constitution of being non-political - non sectarian changed the rules....
