Christmas 2019 might seem a long way off, but plans are already being made for the festive lights switch-on evening in Brigg on Friday, November 30.
In some years past there have been issues with overflowing litter bins due to more than 1,000 people visiting the town centre and many of them opting to buy fast food takeaways or drinks in cups and cartons.
However, for the 2019 event Brigg Town Council has already arranged for its handymen to check that the bins are empty before the switch-on celebrations begin and then monitor the situation during the evening.
A litter pick is also planned for the following day (Saturday) to ensure the town centre is tidy after the big event.
These details were revealed during Brigg Town Council's monthly meeting, held in the Angel Suite Lounge on Monday (July 22).
Litter-picking in the Springs Parade area of Brigg is to be arranged over the coming months by Bargain Madness (B&M) which has a store nearby.
The Town Council has made contact with B&M which uses a cleaning company. It will be looking to tidy up every four weeks.
