TICKETS ON SALE FOR BRIGG SCHOOL REUNION WITH TWO ANNIVERSARIES TO CELEBRATE
Tickets are now on sale for the biggest reunion of 2019 for former pupils of three Brigg schools.
If you attended Sir John Nelthorpe School, Brigg Grammar or Brigg Girls' High, please note that the Briggenians' Association annual dinner has been arranged for Saturday, March 16 at Elsham Golf Club (7pm).
The association says that as 2019 is a very special anniversary year, the organisers are anticipating an increased demand for tickets and are advising people to book early to secure places.
That's a reference to this year seeing the 350th anniversary of Brigg's initial school (later known as Brigg Grammar) being founded in Sir John Nelthorpe's 1669 will, and the 100th anniversary of Brigg Girls' High School opening in 1919.
The guest speaker will be Doctor Ann Rae, pictured above, a former pupil of Sir John Nelthorpe School, who is Head of Genetics, Research and Development with the Cherry Valley company.
It started as a Lincolnshire family business in the late 1950s, producing the UK’s first oven-ready duck.
Tickets for the event, which includes a three-course meal, cost £25. The closing date for applications is March 1.
Cheques - made payable to The Briggensians Association - should be sent to The Dinner Secretary, c/o Rachael Harvey, Sir John Nelthorpe School, Wrawby Road, Brigg, DN20 8DS Tel 01652 656551.
This will be the Briggensians' 42nd annual dinner, which is quite an achievement.
