AWARDS FOR TOP BRIGG COMMUNITY VOLUNTEERS

 

Brigg Town Council's Annual Civic Dinner saw volunteers receive their Joseph J. Magrath Awards for public voluntary service.
Framed certificates were presented in the Angel Suite by Town Mayor Coun Ann Eardley, who also presented the top building award to Brown & Co for its premises in the Market Place.
The Town Mayor went on to present some gifts of her own to some of those who have been helping her during her year as the town's first citizen.
Among the recipients was Ken Harrison, chairman of the Brigg Matters community magazine.
Ken kindly took all the pictures except for one, and our thanks go to the stand-in photographer who took the one of him with Coun Eardley.
This year saw the Magrath Award shared by a number of worthy winners.

.....multi-talented, Claire Davies - BTC Town Clerk, Nige.
Wot the Angel Suite needs, for civic, social and wedding functions, is a dedicated section 4 taking foto's. Hopefully, This would ameliorate the 'ghosting' of phlash foto...and reduce background clutter.

In case some folks think I have received an Magrath Award for being chair of Brigg Matters.
The truth is the Town Mayor, Cllr Ann E. expressed simple thank-yous to folks who had helped her in her mayoral role; I was surprised to be mentioned and gave Ann a hug (anothet photo).
As for Brigg Matters, I would not be selfish enough to singularly receive any award/recognition for the magazine's inreasing popularity.
Brigg Matters is a team..a team that represents a wide range of ages, from a full-time mum, a working professional to retired folk with multi-facet talents. Individuals are magnificienly professional and form an excellent team and Brigg Matters is collectively a magazine of those volunteers, as well those volunteers who willingly undertake the door-to-door deliveries.
Everyone is important.
