The annual Blessing of the Pumps ceremony in Brigg town centre will take place on Saturday, June 9th 2018.
It will feature three folk dancing teams and is always a colourful event which attracts many visitors and townsfolk of all ages to watch the spectacle.
The fun will start  mid-morning, with the blessing of the two surviving cast-iron communal water pumps following later.
The pumps are close to the County Bridge, on Bridge Street, and  on Grammar School Road South at the side of JD Wetherspoon's White Horse pub/restaurant.
Brigg Town Business Partnership is central to the organisation, and the pump blessing is being support by Wetherspoon's, Tesco, Nisa Local and Brown & Co.
In the days before all homes in Brigg had piped water on tap, many families had to go to these communal pumps to draw the day's supply.
If attending the Brigg Pump Blessing is still on your 'to do' bucket list, make a note of the date of the 2018 event.

10.30am: The Tatterfoals, Beverley Garland and Green Ginger Garland will be dancing at various locations within the town centre.
11.40am: The grand parade sets off from the Market Place for the pump near the bridge, where there will be dancing and flowers "presented."
12.05am: Parade to the second pump near the White Horse for a similar ceremony.
12.25am: Dancing at various locations by the three groups.
1.15pm: Grand finale in the Market Place, where you will be welcome to join the dancing!
