OFFICIAL OPENING OF NEW BRIGG SCHOOL BUILDINGS
A Brigg school is to be officially opened.
The ceremony will take place at The Vale Academy, off Atherton Way, at 10am on Tuesday, December 11.
Among those in attendance will be the Mayor of North Lincolnshire, Coun John Briggs, from Crowle, who recently visited the town as a guest at the Christmas lights ceremony in the Market Place.
The Vale Academy buildings have replaced those dating back to the 1950s that stood on Grammar School Road and Redcombe Lane.
They were originally constructed to provide secondary modern education, being named Westmoor and Glanford.
Glanford catered for Brigg children, while Westmoor provided education for those from nearby villages.
From the mid-1970s, when the 11-plus examination was phased out, they combined to become the Vale of Ancholme School.
Coun Briggs will also be in Brigg on Wednesday, December 12 for the Brigg Festival of Trees and Wreaths preview evening at St John's Church, Bigby Street (6pm).
