HOW BRIGG WILL COMMEMORATE 100TH ANNIVERSARY OF THE GUNS FALLING SILENT
The Monument war memorial has now been refurbished and the lettering on the plaques listing the names of The Fallen re-gilded - funding coming from Brigg Town Council and North Lincolnshire Council.
A host of events will be held across the town to commemorate the First World War Armistice 100 years ago in November 1918. Here are some of them...
