This is a milestone year for one of the main landmarks in Brigg - our Monument war memorial, erected and dedicated 100 years ago.
Donated to the town by Alderman Harry Stamp, it was unveiled in 1919 - one of the first memorials to appear after World War One.
Most across the UK came in the 1920s, often as a result of local fundraising over a number of years.
Brigg's 2019 Remembrance Sunday commemorations on November 10 will include two minutes' silence at the Monument at 11am.
The landmark - now grade two listed - has been well maintained, the most recent refurbishment being undertaken by Brigg Town Council with assistance from the North Lincolnshire authority.
