BRIGG BUSINESSES HAVE A NEW CHIEF IN CHARGE
The go-ahead Brigg Town Business Partnership works very hard to promote the town with many events and promotions, including the Blessing of the Pumps which is coming up tomorrow (Saturday) in the town centre.
BTBP now has a new chief officer in succession to Malcolm Bailey, who gave prior notice that he'd be standing down at the annual general meeting.
Coun Deb Dunderdale, well-known for her connections with the Deli & Diner in Wrawby Street, was elected to take over from Malcolm.
She was installed during the Partnership's annual meeting, held in the function room at the Buttercross.
We wish her well in her new role.
Malcolm received his colleagues' best wishes and thanks from Chris Darlington.
Chris said Malcolm had spearheaded the campaign to get national recognition, culminating in Brigg being named in the best high street in Britain competition.
"You will be missed," said Chris. "We thank you for what you have done for Brigg."
Coun Rob Waltham, leader of North Lincolnshire Council, also thanked the retiring chairman for being "a driving force."
Malcolm stressed the importance of businesses supporting the various events taking place in the town.
Town Mayor Coun Ann Eardley said people came "from far and wide" to visit Brigg, including Market Rasen.
"Everyone who comes is very impressed by the shops," she added.
