TALKING SHOP: A FEW BRIGG TOWN CENTRE REFLECTIONS
Brigg Blog thinks they've done a very good job on the frontage of the Marmaris takeaway on Wrawby Street, Brigg (pictured above), including the colour scheme.
Previously painted red, this is a popular fast food outlet, opposite Wetherspoon's White Horse pub.
The woodwork surrounding the windows has received attention. But, so far, there's no sign, or lettering, in place to complete the refurbishment.
And on the subject of licensed premises, many customers enjoy sitting beside a real fire while sipping their ale, lager, gin or wine during the colder months of the year.
During a weekend visit to the Yarborough Hunt, on Bridge Street, we wondered whether toasting bread or crumpets (pikelets) on the log fire would prove popular.
Could folk take along their own, and also small butter or margarine sachets of the type available in cafes?
A toasting fork wouldn't be too difficult to source. But hot chestnuts would probably be ruled out on health and safety grounds, this being 2018!
Just days after we heard of plans for a Tourism Partnership, Brigg received an unexpected influx of football fans to splash their cash on refreshments.
The Nottingham Forest faithful came by bus on their way to watch Saturday afternoon's game at Hull City.
During Monday night's Brigg Town Council meeting, Coun Penny Smith congratulated the police for being present in the town centre and visiting pubs to ensure "order was maintained."
Incidents of cars being driven, and bikes being ridden, through Brigg's pedestrian-only area continue - despite this being ruled out by the regulations.
But we observed an unusual combination one recent evening on Wrawby Street.
A cyclist was going at some speed and being followed by a car whose driver had to travel in convoy until Cross Street.
They sped past one CCTV camera and into full view of another!
