Humberside Police has been criticised over the time of day and manner in which it decided to breath-test motorists on the outskirts of Brigg.
Coun Penny Smith did not object to officers pulling over drivers on the A18 beyond Ancholme Leisure Centre.
What bothered her was parked police cars blocking one lane of this busy road and causing delays for law-abiding motorists.
Police were not in attendance at Brigg Town Council's latest monthly meeting in the Angel Suite on Monday evening (June 25).
So Coun Smith used 'Police Matters' on the agenda to express her displeasure at the traffic jams that resulted.
The early morning crackdown took place on Thursday, June 21 - the second day of the Lincolnshire Show.
Having raised the issue, Coun Smith said she hoped it would be drawn to someone's attention.
Brigg Blog contacted the Humberside force to see whether it wished to comment. No reply has been forthcoming so far.
Another 'notice of intention' application to fell a tree in Brigg has been submitted to North Lincolnshire Council, the local planning authority.
The latest relates to a gingko biloba tree at The Gables, on Bigby Road.
It is also intended to 'crown reduce' a holly at the same address.
Both trees are within the Brigg Conservation Area.
A statement submitted to council planners explains the trees are close to houses and a busy footpath and suggests "the works need to be carried out as soon as possible."
The ginkgo has suffered a large amount of rot at the base and there is a sizeable crack forming between the two stems, the statement says.
Brigg Town Council's Planning & Environment Committee considered the proposed tree works at its latest meeting and supported the proposals.
North Lincolnshire Council is now considering the 'notice of intention'.
Brigg Blog was pleased to give directions to a car-driving visitor to the town during last Saturday's June farmers' market.
She was on Bridge Street, close to the County Bridge, and seemed pleasantly surprised to hear about the free car parking made available by North Lincolnshire Council, off Old Courts Road.
The visitor planned to stay in Brigg as long as possible, taking a look at the town centre and the market.
This set us thinking about roadside signs advising visiting drivers who may be unfamiliar with long-stay car parking locations.
Should some blue ones be added on the A1084 Bigby Road and the A18 on Wrawby Road and Bridge Street to point the way?
To 'P' or not to 'P' - that is the question!
Telling her we hoped here visit would prove enjoyable, we now wonder what she made of Brigg.
Perhaps we should have offered a few recommendations, including one or two places to get a bite to eat and a drink.
Warm but not too hot, the weather proved perfect for browsing the farmers' and general Saturday market stalls and visiting town centre businesses.

FROM CHRIS O'ROURKE, NORTH LINCOLNSHIRE COUNCIL
If you’re planning to get together with friends and family to support England through the knockout stages of the World Cup, remember to recycle your waste once the whistle’s blown.
Many of us will be enjoying a drink to celebrate a victory – or drown our sorrows – during this year’s World Cup; don’t forget that your glass bottles and drinks cans can all be recycled in your green box.
Once you have filled your recycling box, we can take extra cans and tins in a plastic bag if you put it out with your recycling. Please make sure all your glass jars and bottles are in the green box.
If you’re enjoying a takeaway with the match, pizza boxes, rinsed-out plastic containers and other cardboard can be recycled in your burgundy bin.
Foil containers can be rinsed out and recycled in your green box.
Unfortunately, polystyrene packaging and greasy paper from the chippy cannot be recycled; put these in your green or grey general waste bin.
Cllr Ralph Ogg, cabinet member for Safer, Greener and Cleaner Spaces said: “The World Cup is a time of celebration and expectation, and having your friends and family over to watch the match is a great way to get into the spirit of the game. Fortunately, if you’re left to clean up after everybody has gone home, just remember that most of it can be recycled!”
Did you know that due to the way plastic is recycled, black plastic cannot be recycled in your burgundy bin?
Sorting machines use laser scanners to separate out plastics ready for recycling. Black plastic doesn’t reflect the light so can’t be sorted by the scanners.
Find out more about what you can recycle in each of your bins and boxes on our website at www.northlincs.gov.uk/waste
FROM LEE FIELDEN, BARNETBY UNITED FC
The Club is pleased to announce that Fred Brumpton will be presenting the Junior and Senior trophies at this weekend's presentation evening (tomorrow - Saturday, June 30).
Fred played for the club's Junior side winning the inaugural West Wold Intermediate League title in 1947-48 and went on to play for for the 1st team with great success.
He played in the side that twice reached the Junior Cup Quarter-finals in 49-50 and 52-53 and was a member of the side that lifted the Senior War Memorial Cup in 1953.
This golden period for the Village side was capped off in April 1954 when the side, containing men such as Jesse Dawson, Reg Vessey, Cut Short and Fred clinched the Grimsby League 1st Division title on goal difference from Park United.
Fred scored one of Barnetby’s 4 goals in a 4-3 victory at Laceby on the last day of the season. Barnetby’s other goals being scored by Lofthouse (2) and Harvey.
The presentations will again be at the Whistle and Flute with the Junior trophies being presented at 19-00. Senior trophies will follow.
We hope to see you there.

One of the Brigg community projects to be completed in the months ahead will be a new Holocaust Memorial.
A competition was held, asking people to come up with suitable designs.
The winner was Izzy Roberts, a Year 9 pupil at Sir John Nelthorpe School, Brigg, who has been congratulated on her "fantastic achievement."
Her design will be installed at the Millennium Green, off Elwes Street, whose maintenance and management is now being overseen by Brigg Town Council.
In the latest edition of its newletter, SJN says this was a fantastic opportunity for the school to be involved in a community project.
Pupils were able to combine their knowledge of The Holocaust from their religious education lessons with their art and design skills.
Each member of the group worked hard to produce high quality, thought-provoking designs.
The school says Izzy's winning design will be constructed by a local metalwork specialist and will then be unveiled in its permanent location.
Currently there is a Holocaust Memorial within the courtyard of the Angel complex.
Every January a solemn service is held in the courtyard to remember those who perished.
PICTURED ABOVE: The Millennium Green - a Year 2000 community project, initially overseen by a trust.
Brigg folk who have always fancied growing their own fruit and veg, like the couple in hit TV series The Good Life, should note that the Town Council has half-a-dozen vacant allotment plots.
They are sited off Grammar School Road, not far from the flyover bridge above the M180, and available to rent for a small annual payment.
If taking on a plot interests you, or a friend or family member, contact Brigg Town Council to find out more.
Call at the office in the Angel complex or email Town Clerk Dinah Lilley - firstname.lastname@example.org
All the allotments on Redcombe Lane/Atherton Way are currently let.
The Grammar School Road allotments are to be re-located to a new site but no date has yet been set for this, and it could be many months before it happens.
UPDATE - JULY 10, 2018: Vacant plots now filled - N.F.
North Lincolnshire Council's planning committee has granted permission for six new homes to be built in the Brigg & Wolds Ward - on the site of a former pub.
Councillors meeting at Scunthorpe Civic Centre accepted a recommendation from planning staff to grant permission for three pairs of semi-detached houses on the site of the former Railway Inn (now demolished) off Kings Road, Barnetby.
Barnetby Parish Council lodged an objection to this application.
But a North Lincolnshire Council planning officer's report prepared for the committee said: "Whilst part of the site is outside the defined development boundary, the proposal makes use of the natural boundaries of this part of the site and re-develops the area of hardstanding."
It added: "The proposed development is considered to be an acceptable design and layout on this brownfield site. The siting of two to three dwellings outside of the development limit is not considered to have an adverse impact on the character, setting or appearance of the open countryside and can be justified due to the development which is being proposed within the settlement boundary as part of this application."
Our picture shows the pub soon after demolition had started.

Licensed premises in Brigg will again be vying for trade tonight (Thursday, June 28) as football fans select a venue to watch televised coverage of the England v Belgium World Cup qualifying group encounter.
The Black Bull, on Wrawby Street, is advertising the availability of free food from 6pm, with the game in Russia kicking off an hour later.
The Dying Gladiator, on Bigby Street, says England v Belgium is on one of its so-called "Thirsty Thursdays" with great deals on drinks for folk watching the big-screen action.
The Woolpack Hotel, in the Market Place, is also likely to prove particularly popular with supporters keen to cheer on Gareth Southgate's team.
Away from the town centre, Brigg Town Football Club's Hawthorns seems a fitting place to watch the action unfold. Or may prefer to watch the game at another licensed venue we haven't mentioned in this brief round-up.
They will all be glad to receive your custom.
BARNETBY TO LONDON DIRECT TRAINS COULD START IN 2020 AND BRIGG BLOG CALLS FOR CONNECTING BUSES TO BRIGG
A new direct train service from Barnetby to London could start in 2020, North Lincolnshire Council is suggesting.
And a Brigg councillor has welcomed the results of a local survey demonstrating 'strong evidence' that the new service to the capital should be given the green light.
Progress on Direct London train link
FROM SARAH HOWE, NORTH LINCOLNSHIRE COUNCIL
Moves to deliver a direct train link to London have received a welcome boost following an extensive survey of North Lincolnshire residents.
Leader of North Lincolnshire Council, Cllr Rob Waltham, presented the findings of a survey which detailed the high level of support for a new direct rail train from Scunthorpe to London – to Chris Brandon from Grand Central.
A staggering 1,466 people responded to the survey to establish the level of support for a direct rail service from Scunthorpe to London.
A resounding 97 per cent of the survey were in support with an additional 57 residents expressing their support by letter or email.
The main findings from the survey are:
- The primary purpose of journeys to London for those who responded to the survey is to visit friends or relatives or a day out
- When travelling to London by rail, the majority of respondents start their journey from Scunthorpe Station with clear evidence of need in Barnetby and Crowle also.
- 74 per cent of respondents who travel by train, park at the train station or a car park nearby or are dropped off at the station by car
Potentially, half of those who responded to the survey would use a station closer to home for travel to London if station facilities or rail services were improved
Main concern from respondents if a Direct Rail Service to London progresses is the provision of station parking
If the bid receives support from the rail regulator, services could start in 2020.
Cllr Rob Waltham MBE (Brigg & Wolds), leader, North Lincolnshire Council, said: It was an interesting meeting and gave me the opportunity to convey how strongly residents feel about having a direct rail service from North Lincolnshire stations to London.
“I am hopeful that the findings of this survey will provide strong evidence for a potential service in the future. Such a service would help enormously and would open up the opportunity for more businesses and residents to invest, visit and live in North Lincolnshire.
"Grand central are working hard to establish a bid to the regulator and the evidence of support from North Lincolnshire residents can only help with this business case.
"I received a number of really positive letters about our bid for this service. However residents were also clear that their facilities would need to improve and increase at local train stations if this service is likely to go ahead. We will be using this data to present the strongest possible case.”
Chris Brandon, Programme Manager, Grand Central, said: “We are grateful for the market research undertaken by North Lincolnshire Council and look forward to being able to use the information in developing our plans. We are currently in the process of refining our proposals and hope to be in a position to take forward an application to the Office of Rail and Road in the near future.”
N.F. ADDS: Brigg Blog is a firm supporter of train travel and improved public transport and welcomes the latest initiative. But we also know that some rail campaigners think local effort should first be put into improving the very sparse, Saturdays-only train service along the Brigg Line. We support efforts being made to improve BOTH. If, or when, the direct London link is agreed, a top priority will be ensuring that the Brigg-Wrawby-Barnetby bus service is timed to meet all London trains. And/or the CallConnect dial-a-bus is arranged to do so. But that's clearly something for the future.

Sir John Nelthorpe School in Brigg has installed a new artificial cricket pitch to replace the old one that was well past its sell-by date. Other cricket equipment has also been purchased.
Thanks have been expressed to various groups and people, including the One Family Foundation, the Brigg Biomass Fund, the Briggensians' Association and Helen Lyons, a parent who helped with submitting the bids and co-ordinating the applications.
Their efforts mean that the great summer sport is now 'back in play at SJN'.
The first match on the new pitch saw SJN Years 7 & 8 playing South Axholme Academy, from Epworth.
Details of the investment in cricket at SJN are revealed in the latest online version of the school newsletter Nelthorpe News. Included is the above picture montage.
Brigg Grammar School, which ended in 1976, and SJN for many years after that, boasted a well-tended grass cricket square.
Due to the time and expense involved, this was eventually replaced by an artificial version.
There was also a fine wooden cricket pavilion, built in the 1920s, but that suffered the ravages of time and was demolished some years ago.
Many pupils developed their batting, bowling and fielding skills at the school and moved on to play club cricket for various local teams.
That began during Queen Victoria's reign and is still the case today.
For the pedantic: Cricket is played on a pitch; the wicket is the stumps and bails. Even some former Test cricketers, commentating on TV, call the playing strip a wicket!

A scheme to install new signs outside the historic Lord Nelson Hotel in Brigg town centre has gained Town Council support.
Listed building and advertisement consent is being sought by owners The Old Mill Brewery to install replacement signs and re-paint the exterior of the hostelry at 24/25 Market Place.
This is an amended scheme - an earlier one having been rejected by planners because it was not felt to be in keeping with the buildings or the conservation area.
At the latest meeting of Brigg Town Council's Planning & Environment Committee held on Monday evening (June 25), chairman Mike Storey suggested: "They have obviously listened to be objections."
Coun Jane Kitching said of the revised submission: "It's a lot better - and a lot more in keeping."
The committee decided it was "in support" of the latest application.
Its views will be passed on to North Lincolnshire Council which will make the final decision on whether to grant permission.
The Lord Nelson Hotel offers drinks, meals and accommodation and is managed by father and son Richard and Jordan Smith.
TOP MARKS! BRIGG SCHOOL LAUNCHES ONLINE NEWSLETTER & IT'S PACKED WITH INTEREST FOR PUPILS OLD AND NEW
Brigg Blog congratulates Sir John Nelthorpe School on the launch of its newsletter Nelthorpe News in online format.
The school's publication has been produced as a PDF file with copies emailed far and wide, and it arrived in our in-box the other day.
The Nelthorpe News Summer 2018 issue is packed with information about developments and achievements at the school.
However, current teachers and pupils will be unaware just how long Nelthorpe News has been running.
It launched way back in the 1980s when David Coulson, who lived in Brigg, was the headteacher.
The following decade saw 'yours truly' delegated by the Scunthorpe Telegraph to work with the school to produce quarterly issues, which appeared as eight-page supplements within the Scunthorpe Telegraph.
A number of other secondary schools followed Sir John Nelthorpe's groundbreaking lead.
We enjoyed working with SJN to produce Nelthorpe News well into the new Millennium and during the headships of David Brittain and Linda Hewlett-Parker.
Latterly, the school has been producing ts own printed version.
In his introduction to the first online Nelthorpe News, headteacher Rob Biglands, pictured, says: "I have taken the decision to publish this newsletter for the first time as an online edition, which is accessible via our website.
"The costs of producing a full colour printed newsletter are sadly too great for the already stretched school finances, so I hope you will see this move as an appropriate alternative."
Rob tells parents: "If you would like to purchase a printed copy for yourself from the school for £1, you can do so via Tucasi, the online payment system, with your child collecting their copy from the finance office; alternatively, your child can pay in cash, also at the finance office."
We think he has made a very wise decision!

Leaves sprouting from the base of tree trunks needed to be removed on a number of Brigg streets, Coun Ann Eardley suggested during the latest meeting of the Town Council on Monday (June 25).
The former Town Mayor reported hearing "lots of complaints."
Coun Rob Waltham, the leader of North Lincolnshire Council, told Coun Eardley that the authority was in the process of dealing with this issue.
From time to time over the years, Brigg Blog has highlighted the problem of sprouting foliage blocking drivers' views of approaching traffic at certain junctions, including exiting Garden Street onto Queen Street and exiting St Helen's Road onto the A1084, Bigby Road.
Certainly in the later case, things have been fine so far this year, with the leaves cut back.
Coun Eardley went on to complain about:
- 2ft high grass in need of cutting along the riverbank
- Broken glass and graffiti not being removed under the Ancholme Way bridge
- Weeds on footpaths being sprayed with killer without the dead matter being removed.
Coun Waltham did not think the grass had reached 2ft in height and added that the weedkiller applied on paths had to be given time to work. North Lincolnshire Council already had plans drawn up to remove the dead matter, he told Coun Eardley.
Later in the meeting, Coun Sharon Riggall said extra watering of Brigg in Bloom flowers was being undertaken because of the hot weather.

Now is the time to submit entries for Best Brigg Garden & Allotment of 2018 competition.
In a change to the way things have been done in the past, Brigg Town Council is now inviting townsfolk to nominate their own gardens or allotment and/or those of friends and neighbours.
- Best house front garden
- Best hanging basket at the front of a property
- Best hanging basket/display at premises of a business or organisation
- Best school display
- Best allotment plot
Judging will be undertaken during August and winners notified.
Town Clerk Dinah Lilley told Brigg Town Council's latest meeting, held in the Angel Suite last night (Monday, June 25) that some entries had been received already.
Entry forms can be obtained from the council's office in the Angel Suite, near Exchange Place. Or see the current issue of Brigg Matters Magazine.
The Town Council's email address is email@example.com
PICTURED: One of the gardens entered in last year's competition.
Brigg is fortunate to have many long-established clubs and societies - sporting, social and cultural.
A directory compiled 44 years ago for Edward Dodd's book Brigg listed some that are still going today and named one or more officials to contact in each case, to help those keen to join. However, a number of clubs have fallen by the wayside since 1974.
We trust the list compiled by Lincolnshire & South Humberside Times journalist Ted will bring back memories of how the town used to be.

No panic, folks. We don't have a 'black gold' gusher in Brigg.
It's Cllr Jane Kitching, dressed in the guise of Red Adair, the famous American oil-well blowout expert of the 1960s & 70s, just before she set out with a team of volunteers to undertake a litter pick around the Glebe Road/Grammar School Road area.
FROM KIRSTY WESTFIELD, NORTH LINCOLNSHIRE COUNCIL
In North Lincolnshire, working families have started to benefit from the 30 hours funded childcare for their children aged three and four – potentially saving them around £5,000 per year per child.
All families are eligible for 15 hours funded childcare per week with an Ofsted registered child carer. The additional 15 hours is available to most working families.
To apply for the extended 15 hours of funding, families should visit the Childcare Choices website www.childcarechoices.gov.uk
Here they can create a Government Gateway account and then apply for the ‘30 hours childcare’. The website gives a straightforward explanation of all Government childcare support, including Tax Credits or Universal Credits for childcare and the recently launched Tax Free Childcare.
All eligible parents are supplied with an 11-digit eligibility code to present to their chosen childcare provider who will then validate this and discuss attendance patterns.
A childcare calculator is also available for all families. It helps you quickly find out which of the childcare funding options works best for you. Visit www.gov.uk/childcare-calculator
Any applications made now will be able to access the extended 15 hours from 1 September 2018.
Families can apply during the term that their child turns three years of age and will be able to start the next school term. Families are encouraged to apply now to secure their place for September.
Families can access their funded place in Ofsted registered childcare, including childminders, nurseries, pre-schools, school nurseries, before and after school clubs, or a mix of these. Each type of provider offers different session times and availability. Parents should consider their needs and the type of childcare that is most appropriate. They can choose to split their funding between more than one setting, and they can spread the 1,140 of childcare hours throughout the year if required. A maximum of 10 hours childcare is available in any one day. Not all providers offer the funded places completely free of charge, for example parents may be asked to pay for meals.
Children are eligible for the universal and extended 15 hours the school term after their third birthday. For the additional 15 hours, both parents or a lone parent where appropriate, must be in employment (including self-employment) and expect to earn (on average) at least £120 a week. This is equal to 16 hours at the National Minimum or Living Wage. If one parent is on maternity, paternity or adoption leave, or unable to work due to illness, a disability or caring responsibilities, they may still be eligible for the additional funded hours.
Parents who expect to earn in excess of £100,000 (individually) are not eligible. Parents who are studying are also not eligible, but other financial support may be available. Visit the Childcare Choices website for more information.
To help families make a choice the Family Information Service can supply details of local childcare providers. They can be contacted on firstname.lastname@example.org or 01724 296629.
Cllr David Rose, cabinet member for Children, Families, Learning and Leisure, said: “Extended childcare funding supports families who work, but it can also assist families who wish to return to work, or increase their working hours, by making childcare more affordable.
“If you have a three or four year old who you would like to access the funding in September, you must apply as soon as possible and before 31 August, otherwise their funding won’t be available for the autumn term.
“The Government’s online childcare calculator is a very useful tool to help you work out which funding option is best for your family, and our Family Information Service is on hand to help you find a local childcare provider to suit your needs. Please do not hesitate to contact them for details.”

We don't expect that Brigg Town Football Club playing first team fixtures in the Lincolnshire League next season will result in a significant dip in home attendances at The Hawthorns.
Brigg finished second from bottom in the Northern Counties East First Division in April and have been relegated.
However, despite being in a lower tier of the footballing pyramid structure, quite a few home games during the 2018/2019 season will be against teams within decent driving distance of Brigg, including Lincoln, Immingham, Grimsby and Gainsborough.
So perhaps this will lead to more away fans coming to see their sides in action at the Hawthorns.
Dropping down several divisions in recent seasons has not hugely affected home attendances.
Supporters of teams in Grimsby and Gainsborough will be able to use the Saturdays-only passenger train service to get to and from Brigg, affording them the opportunity to enjoy a few pints in Brigg Town's bar before setting off home.
The Zebras played in the Lincolnshire League for several decades after the Second World War before moving up the ladder. So the wheel has turned full circle.
Brigg Blog likes to think it is more 'glass half full' than 'glass half empty' when it comes to reflecting on things in the town.
So we will start on a positive note with the picture above which shows the extensive area of public open space off York Road kept very nicely trimmed for people of all ages to enjoy.
However, close by, the Clothes Hedge public footpath (pictured below) which links Yarborough Road with Churchill Avenue, is rather overgrown and stinging nettles, in particular, need attention.
The path is used by dogs and their owners and also some ramblers who come over the fields from Wrawby.
We trust North Lincolnshire Council will soon be sending a team out to deal with Clothes Hedge Footpath.
Perhaps it's already on someone's "to do" list for later this week.
Last Friday afternoon we went for a walk and were very surprised to see a deer in Brigg. It was in a field of growing crops off Wrawby Road - roughly opposite St Helen's, the large detached house with the long, sweeping drive. Could this be the same deer several people have reported seeing at locations in the town?
A change that is saving the public purse £27,500 a year has been welcomed by Brigg & Wolds councillor Rob Waltham.
Coun Waltham, who lives in Brigg, says the savings can be used to provide important local services and will assist in keeping down council tax bills for householders.
|Coun Rob Waltham|
We’ve successfully procured a new water supplier, saving £27,500 of council taxpayers’ money each year.
Each year, North Lincolnshire Council uses over 160,000m3 of water – that’s enough to fill 65 Olympic-sized swimming pools!
As a council, it’s not just toilets and taps we need water for; we’ve also got swimming pools to fill, floral displays to water, street sweepers, Splash Pads, and of course a fountain in Central Park (Scunthorpe).
Following deregulation of water services in the UK, we’ve been able to procure a new contractor to supply both our water and waste water services, allowing us to make this six per cent annual saving on our £440,000 bill.
Cllr Rob Waltham, Leader of North Lincolnshire Council, welcomed the cost savings. He said: “Just like households across North Lincolnshire, by changing our provider and finding a better deal, we can save money.
“We’re saving nearly £30,000 a year after changing our water supplier; this is money that can be used on vital council services and to help keep council tax as low as possible for residents.”
The new water contract also simplifies our water billing, with just one company providing water and waste water services for the whole council for the first time.
The new contract started from 1 June 2018.
It is now almost a year since an application was submitted to erect three dwellings on a small parcel of land within Brigg town centre.
But no decision has been forthcoming from North Lincolnshire Council.
The land in question is to the rear of of 53 Wrawby Street, adjoining Cross Street.
The council assigned the application a valid date of June 29, 2017 and invited comments from the public by August 3 (10 months ago).
Brigg Town Council responded on July 25 by saying it supported the proposal.
Between July 11 and August 2, three members of the public lodged objections, giving a range of reasons including loss of parking.
Back on August 21 last year, North Lincolnshire Council's conservation staff put in a "holding objection" on the grounds of "inadequate heritage assessment" and "concerns about design."
Most planning applications in Brigg are decided by planners within a few months.

Brigg Town extended their lead at the top of the Lincolnshire County Cricket League fourth division with a 61-run victory at third-in-the-table Haxey 2nds yesterday (Saturday, June 23).
Skipper Nigel Beacock, pictured above, led the way with 65 as Town totalled 195 before being bowled out with five balls remaining in the final over of the permitted 45.
There were other useful contributions with the bat from Matthew Bell (37) and Mark Dawson (30).
Brigg went on to bowl their Isle of Axholme hosts out for 134, in the 40th over, left-armer Phil Dewfall pictured below, grabbing five for 24.
Town took the maximum 20 points from this victory, while second-placed East Halton had to be content with 16 from their win over Scunthorpe Town 3rds who play at Hibaldstow.
Brigg have another away game coming up on Saturday (June 30) when they journey to bottom-placed Keelby 2nds.

North Lincolnshire Council has agreed a community grant to help pay for refurbishment of the Monument war memorial in Brigg.
The unitary authority will be making £1,050 available to Brigg Town Council, which has allocated £500 from its own funds to refurbish and enhance the grade two listed landmark on the A18.
The Monument - remembering local people who gave their lives in the service of their country - was dedicated in June 1919 before a large crowd (pictured above).
The refurbishment will be completed ahead of November when Brigg will be commemorating the 100th anniversary of the guns falling silent during the First World War.
Earlier this year, listed building consent was granted to clean the structure, re-gild the memorial plaques and re-point exposed joints with lime-based mortar.
Alderman Harry Stamp, chairman of Brigg Urban District Council 1915-1919, was the generous benefactor who donated The Monument to Brigg, in memory of our war dead.
We believe he lost a family member, or members, during the so-called war to end all wars.
Each year, on Remembrance Sunday, the memorial is a focal point for the people of Brigg to remember those servicemen and women lost in conflicts around the world.
The Monument - last cleaned in September 2010 - is on a roundabout serving four busy roads, and therefore suffers the effects of pollution from thousands of vehicle exhausts.
Brigg drivers are being advised that delays are possible due to impending roadworks.
North Lincolnshire Council, as the local highway authority, will be carrying out works between Monday, June 25 and Wednesday, June 27 in Scawby Brook - the A18/B1206.
A new lamp-post is to be installed, which will result in some incursion onto the road.

A Brigg pub has launched a new menu and is offering an extensive takeaway service.
Eat in or at home, there's plenty on offer to hungry folk served up by The Brit Kitchen - also known as T.B.K. - at the Britannia Inn, on Wrawby Street.
We are also informed by mine host, Shane Garrett, that a 20 per cent discount is being offered to those employed by the NHS/blue light services. But more on that later...
A dish on the 'eat in' Pub Classics menu that caught Brigg Blog's eye is bangers & mash, with three Lincolnshire sausages served on a bed of creamy mash with peas and onion gravy, for £5.95.
The takeaway selection includes jacket potatoes, salad trays, platters and burgers.
Children's meals are also on offer.
Pop in and collect printed menus, call 01652 794011 or email email@example.com
Themed days are as follows:
MONDAY: Curry and a drink £5.95.
TUESDAY: Pie and a drink £5.95
THURSDAY: Burger and a drink £5.95
FISH SHOP FRIDAY: Fish dish and a drink £6.95p
SATURDAY: Breakfast club and a drink £6.95.
SUNDAY: Roast and a drink £7.95p.
The Brit Kitchen is open noon to 9pm every day except Wednesday.
With the Health Place offices very close to The Brit, employees, on a lunch break, might like to call and pick up a sandwich or eat in.
This reminds us the old Queen's Arms, which proved to a very popular lunch-time venue for hungry council staff from nearby Hewson House during the reign of Bob and Sue Nicholson, particularly after the launch of North Lincolnshire Council in the 1990s.
Staff only had to walk the short distance down Queen Street.
Brigg bars are currently doing their level best to attract football fans along to watch live televised coverage of England's matches in the 2018 World Cup.
With a 2-1 win over Tunisia already achieved, England's next group game will be tomorrow (Sunday, June 24) against Panama (KO 1pm British Summer Time).
Brigg Town Football Club's Hawthorns venue is offering a barbecue from 12 noon tomorrow for England supporters to tuck into before watching the big game on the big screen.
This reminds Brigg Blog of a previous tournament some years ago, in the Paul Scholes era.
We joined many others to watch England in action on the TV at the Hawthorns.
Having sunk a few pints, we left our seat - very late in the game - to join the queue for the gents, with England 1-0 up. By the time we returned, our boys were 2-1 down!
Bladder control, like ball control, is a must when it comes to the so-called Beautiful Game.
England have another important clash with Belgium coming up on Thursday, June 28 (7pm).
Various licensed premises in the town will welcome your custom then and tomorrow.
PICTURED ABOVE: Players and officials at The Hawthorns in front of the big screen in the Hawthorns bar.
A large outbuilding behind the Nelthorpe Arms pub in Brigg has been advertised to lease.
It was placed on the market through Paul Fox Commercial, the local agent.
The property, which was used as a function room, has planning permission for use as offices, storage and workshop space (light industrial/research and development).
One of the last events to be held in the building was Brigg Beer Festival 2018.
The pub itself closed on May 27 with a farewell party at the end of the tenant's lease and the owners are seeking planning permission and listed building consent for change of use to three dwellings. View further details here...
North Lincolnshire Council - the local planning authority - has yet to make a decision.
As our picture shows, the windows of the pub have now been boarded up.
View further details about the vacant outbuilding through this link...
The outbuilding - known as The Barn - can be seen on the left of the picture above.

During a meeting early next week, councillors are to consider an amended scheme proposing new signage at a Brigg town centre pub/restaurant within the Conservation Area.
North Lincolnshire Council planners rejected the initial application for the Lord Nelson Hotel (interior view above) submitted by owners The Old Mill Brewery, Snaith.
Now a new proposal for advertisement and listed building consent has been lodged and will be considered by Brigg Town Council's Planning & Environment Committee when it meets in the Angel Suite on Monday (June 25) from 6.45pm.
Brigg town councillors may, if they choose, make comments and recommendations to North Lincolnshire planners, who will make the final decision.
Brigg Town Council objected to the initial plans for new signs at the Nelson.
Monday's meeting is open to interested members of the public, and Brigg Blog will be there to report the discussions.
This being the first planning meeting since the Town Council's annual meeeting, members will need to elect and chairman and vice-chairman for the coming months.
Coun Mike Storey is the current chairman.
