THEY LOVE BRIGG: Shoppers enjoying the sun in the town centre  - see Nigel Fisher's Brigg Blog

We think an I Love Brigg event would be very welcome in 2019. It could promote what our historic town has to offer shoppers and visitors.
The idea is not ours - it comes from Market Rasen in neighbouring West Lindsey.
Brigg could easily amend what Rasen is doing to benefit our town.
If this idea appeals to them, the go-ahead Brigg Town Business Partnership could work in conjunction with Brigg Town Council and North Lincolnshire Council to promote an I Love Brigg Day or even Weekend on a suitable date, or dates, during late spring or the summer.
In addition to a wide range of shops, Brigg has historic buildings that might feature in guided tours, many interesting pubs and eateries, the Heritage Centre and the Ancholme Valley Way walk/cycle track alongside the River Ancholme.
Let's not forget that the Saturday-only passenger train service on the iconic Brigg Line will allow interested visitors to come to town from North Nottinghamshire, Gainsborough, Grimsby and Cleethorpes.
There's also Hornsbys frequent No 4 and X4 bus services allowing people from Scunthorpe and Broughton to come to Brigg.
Here are the details sent to us from Market Rasen Racecourse. Please read what's on offer and see whether you agree with us that Brigg could do something similar...
