WISHING ALL BRIGG BLOG FOLLOWERS & CONTRIBUTORS A VERY MERRY CHRISTMAS 2017
BY NIGEL FISHER, BRIGG BLOG'S FOUNDER & EDITOR, pictured
The clock on top of the Buttercross in Brigg town centre now having ticked past midnight, it's Christmas Day 2017 and time for Brigg Blog to wish all our valued followers across the world a very merry Christmas, and also all those who have contributed news and views during the past 12 months.
While the majority of us will be enjoying a work-free Christmas Day, let's spare a thought for those in essential services - fire, police and ambulance - who are on duty and ready to answer calls for service from the community. Plus those working in care homes and our local hospital, tending to the needy and infirm.
Some Brigg ex-pats, like Cliff Turner in New Zealand and our old Brigg Town Cricket Club colleague Simon Church in Australia, now live thousands of miles from our historic market town.
Whether you are based in Brigg, the surrounding area, elsewhere in the UK or further afield, the message is the same:
Have a good one!
Below is a Christmas Greetings message received by email from former Brigg councillor, the Rev Alec Depledge, and his wife Sue, which we share with our followers on Christmas Day. Click on the image for a closer view.
