REFURBISHMENT OF BRIGG LANDMARK GIVEN THE GO AHEAD
One of the best-known landmarks in Brigg can now be refurbished.
North Lincolnshire Council has granted listed building consent so work can be carried out on the Monument war memorial - not far short of 100 years old and encircled by the A18 roundabout.
Brigg Town Council made a successful application to clean the memorial to include re-gilding of memorial plaques and re-point exposed joints with lime-based mortar.
The work will be undertaken ahead of November when Brigg will commemorate the 100th anniversary of the guns falling silent in the First World War.
