PLAN TO HELP BRIGG WALKERS
A new entrance and exit should be provided on an area of public open space in Brigg, Coun Chris Dyson is suggesting.
His comments came during Brigg Town Council's annual meeting in the Angel Suite.
In her retirement speech as Town Mayor, Coun Sharon Riggall made reference to the Town Council recently taking over management of the Millennium Green, off Elwes Street.
Coun Dyson suggested a second entrance should be constructed - on the Cadney side of the green.
He said this would help people enjoying walks along Cadney Road, as currently they have to "double back on themselves" within the green to use the entrance/exit further down Elwes Street.
The green is bordered, near the road, by a small metal fence (see our picture above).
So Brigg Blog thinks it would not prove too expensive, or difficult, to add a new entrance.
Coun Rob Waltham said talks had been held with the pupil of Sir John Nelthorpe School who won the competition to design a new Holocaust Memorial for erection on the green.
A progress report on the memorial is expected at a future meeting of the Town Council.
