Hopes that a long-standing event in the Brigg social calendar will not fall by the wayside were expressed by a long-serving town councillor.
The annual civic dinner, usually held in March, did not take place this year.
But at the annual meeting of Brigg Town Council, Coun Mike Campion - a former Town Mayor - made a strong call for the traditional function to be kept going in the future.
He urged fellow councillors, and others, to support the civic dinner.
"It has been faltering but it would be nice to see it return," he suggested.
The Joseph J. Magrath OBE award for public voluntary service is usually presented during the showpiece event. But that could not happen this year.
One factor that might help, Brigg Blog suggests, would be to time the civic dinner so it does not clash with the annual function hosted by the Briggensians' Association for former pupils and staff of Sir John Nelthorpe School, Brigg Grammar School and Brigg Girls' High School.
There have been many occasions when the civic dinner and the school function (at Elsham Golf Club) have gone ahead on the same evening.
If they took place on different days, interested people would be able to support both.
