REMEMBRANCE SUNDAY 2018 IN BRIGG
Brigg Town Council will be discussing whether or not to change the time of Remembrance Sunday wreath-laying at The Monument war memorial.
Most communities across the country do so at 11am but Brigg's ceremony has taken place at noon for many years every November.
The Town Council, which organises the annual event and parade, is seeking the views of local members of the Royal British Legion.
Town Clerk Dinah Lilley told this month's meeting of the Town Council, held on Monday, that a number of comments had been received.
This will now be an agenda item for discussion at a future council meeting, with a decision being reached.
Meanwhile, listed building consent is now being sought to clean the war memorial to include re-gilding of memorial plaques and re-point exposed joints with lime based mortar.
This application is now being considered by North Lincolnshire Council.
The Monument is a grade two listed structure.
