These four pictures show Brigg events of various kinds that were enjoyed in the mid-1960s.
Hopefully they will bring back some memories. Can you spot any familiar faces?
Above we see some of the people who supported a Convent garden party, with tasty cakes and biscuits on sale. The Convent was on Bigby Street, for the benefit of younger viewers!

Next we see cast members from Brigg Amateur Operatic Society's production of Oklahoma at the Corn Exchange. An interesting range of headgear on view.

Well-known Brigg resident Violet Scuffham features (extreme right) while taking part in a fancy dress parade, possibly at Brigg Town Football Club's Hawthorns or the Recreation Ground. This staunch supporter of the Women's Institute had many interesting letters printed in local newspapers on a range of topics over many years.

And last but not least... A big turn-out for a Brigg Bowling Club dinner, with some local councillors supporting the function. It looks like Councillor Barnard on the top table nearest the wall, wearing a chain - possibly as chairman of Brigg Urban District Council. Coun Vic Gray is among those at the far end of the room.
