NEW BRIGG INFORMATION BOARDS WILL HELP VISITORS AND TOURISTS
New information boards are planned for Brigg town centre.
They will help tourists and visitors, including those coming here for the first time, to find places of interest and get their bearings.
This initiative was discussed during a meeting of Brigg Town Council's Environmental Development Working Group, held in the Angel Suite Lounge on Monday, July 22.
Coun Jane Kitching explained the boards would give people "an overview" and show the location of places like the Millennium Green and the riverside walk.
Content needed to be generic - "something that won't date."
Suggested locations include the Old Courts Road car park, the Angel and Cary Lane, near the bus stop.
Coun Ann Eardley was keen to ensure the displays appealed to young people.
Chris Darlington said new processes meant information board displays would not fade with time.
Robert Jackson, manager of Brigg Heritage Centre, look along a colourful and informative example produced in Louth, showing places of interest. Louth's efforts impressed members of the group.
Coun Rob Waltham, who was chairing the meeting, concluded: "We have the outline of a project."
The working group reports to Brigg Town Council, which makes decisions on matters of policy and finance.
Progress made on the information boards will be reported at the group's next meeting.
