TRUE GRIT! BRIGG PEOPLE WILL BE AMUSED BY WINNING COMPETITION ENTRIES


Brigg Blog has been amused by a competition to name local authority gritting lorries, which received almost 300 entries.
Lincolnshire County Council, whose gritters come to Brigg along the A1084 when ice and snow is forecast, whittled things down to four worthy winners.
The highway authority said it was looking for creative and witty suggestions with a Lincolnshire theme.
The winners were:

  • The Spread Arrows
  • Sir Ice-acc Newton
  • The Jolly Gritterman
  • Mar-grit Thatcher (our personal favourite)
Coun Clio Perraton-Williams, Executive Support Councillor for Highways, said: "We've had some great suggestions and it was really difficult to pick just four.
"However, the winning entries were particularly creative and original and all had a distinct Lincolnshire connection.
"We'd like to thank everyone who took part – I think that we've been able to come up with four fantastic names for our gritters!"
Keep and eye out for these specially-named lorries in the Brigg area during the coming weeks when there's a Touch of Frost.
That would have made a great name for a gritter if Brigg Garden Centre was still called Frost's.
For more information on the council's gritting operations, visit https://www.lincolnshire.gov.uk/lincolnshire-prepared/weather-ready/
Perhaps North Lincolnshire Council, which undertakes most of the local gritting, will take note and run its own competition along similar lines.
It wouldn't involve any cost but would help to draw attention to the important work undertaken to keep our roads safe to drive.
If so, we'll put forward Steelers Wheels for a lorry used on the A18. The council could approach the company running the local steelworks to sponsor this nameplate.
