Many people and some companies from Brigg & district will be attending the Lincolnshire Show 2018 on Wednesday and Thursday, June 20 and 21.
Brigg Garden Centre is offering special support this year to the county's top spectator event, held near the A15 at Grange De Lings, just north of Lincoln

North Lincolnshire Council leader Coun Rob Waltham, from Brigg, says his authority is looking forward to receiving visitors on its stand at the show.
FROM SARAH HOWE, NORTH LINCOLNSHIRE COUNCIL
After last year's success at Lincolnshire Show, winning the best non-agricultural stand at the Show, North Lincolnshire Council is looking forward to ‘meeting you again’ with this year's ‘Aviation and Wartime theme. This year sees the anniversary of 100 years since World Ward 1 and the formation of the RAF and what better way to show our support.
You are invited to take a step back in time and find out what life was like during the war – to taste, feel, and learn. Dance to classic war-time songs and eat wartime flavoured ice-cream and even land a plane!
Have you ever wanted to be a pilot and land a plane? Well you have the opportunity on our flight simulator. Test your nerve and see how well you do. You can listen and sing-along with our war-time singer, local vocalist Mary Daw from Epworth, who will take you back in time with 1940s songs.
Why not try a brand new ice-cream, Apple and Blackberry Crumble with custard that has been created especially for the Show by North Lincolnshire's very own business Roe's Diary Farm from and Barrow.
And if that doesn't tempt you enough, you will find the Wilderspin Old School Canteen offering war-time cakes for you to try! There will also be an interactive display by the Wilderspin National School Museum in Barton where you can dress up in war-time clothes and have a photo in their air-raid shelter. Then after all that, why not sit down and enjoy a complimentary tea or coffee in the vintage tearoom?
The stand is a great opportunity for the council to work with local businesses and this year the ‘Dig for Victory’ vegetable display is being provided courtesy of Brigg Garden Centre.
Call in and find out why North Lincolnshire is a great place to live and visit and take part in our wartime artefact quiz with a chance to win a Normanby Hall Country Park annual pass. Watch a promotional video showcasing the area while you taste the wonderful cakes available from the Wilderspin Canteen.
You can find the North Lincolnshire stand at Lincolnshire Showground on Wednesday 20 and Thursday 21 June, positioned on Row C between Fifth and Sixth Avenue on Stand 5-33.
In addition, you will be able to find out information about the council's Fostering and Adoption Services and how you could make a positive impact on a young person’s life and learn more about the great events and activities that are coming up at Normanby Hall Country Park.
This year's North Lincolnshire stand is not to be missed - make sure you call in.
Cllr Rob Waltham (Brigg & Wolds), leader, North Lincolnshire Council, said: "We use the stand to attract more visitors which brings employment and to get more people to live in North Lincolnshire and to encourage businesses to relocate to the area.
“North Lincolnshire has a rich history and we wanted to recognise and celebrate this by dedicating our stand this year to the theme ‘Aviation and War-time’.
“We also want to showcase what a great place North Lincolnshire is and what it has to offer.
“We have pulled out all the stops this year with our spectacular stand which you can find near to the front of the Showground as you come in. After last year’s award for best non-agricultural stand, we have a strong act to follow!"
“Continuing on this theme, we have planned more events including the Armed Forces Day event in Scunthorpe on 24 June and the Aviation Festival on 29 July in Hibaldstow. We will have details on these and lots more at the Show.
“Lincolnshire Show is renowned for attracting visitors far and wide and we see this as a fantastic opportunity to shout about North Lincolnshire and all it has to offer.
