WINNERS OF TOP BRIGG COMMUNITY AWARD ANNOUNCED
Congratulations to a well-known Brigg couple who are to receive one of the town's top awards.
Mike and Heather Johnson have been chosen by Brigg Town Council to receive the Joseph J. Magrath O.B.E. Award for Public Voluntary Service to the community during 2018.
The council says Mike and Heather organise the Brigg Summer Fair and beer and cider festivals, but "the main one" is Brigg Christmas Fair, accompanying the festive lights switch-on.
They put in a great deal of work to make this festive event the success it is today.
Mike and Heather have both been president of Brigg and District Lions, who support many local people and global causes.
The Town Council says it is delighted to be given this opportunity to recognise the work they do to benefit others.
Mike and Heather "are most worthy recipients" of the Joseph J. Magrath Award, which will be presented during the Town Mayor’s Civic Charity Dinner in the Angel Suite on March 30.
