ENJOY A FREE NIGHT OUT WITH BASH IN BRIGG DURING THE RUN UP TO CHRISTMAS
The final monthly meeting of 2017 for Brigg Amateur Social Historians is coming up and it's free to attend.
The event will be held on Tuesday, December 5 at Brigg Servicemen's Club, off Coney Court (8pm).
BASH founder Josie Webb, pictured, will be giving an illustrated talk about Jesse Boot (1850-1931).
Josie tells us this is the story of a young working class boy who left school at 13 to help his mother run a small herbalist shop which, years later, became the Boots Chemist we know today.
It has a branch on Wrawby Street, Brigg.
There is no admission charge to BASH meetings and membership and/or tickets are not required.
All welcome - just turn up on the night.
Refreshments will be served and a raffle held to help meet costs.
BASH was founded in 2003 to promote an interest and awareness in the local social history of Brigg and surrounding areas, and to support traditional and historical events.
