BRIGG NEEDS LITTER-PICKING VOLUNTEERS: CAN YOU SPARE A FEW HOURS?
Community-minded Brigg residents have an opportunity to help keep the town tidy this weekend.
Another Brigg Town Litter Pick is to be held on Saturday (October 19).
Volunteers are welcome to meet at 9am at the Bandstand in the Market Place.
Equipment will be provided, Brigg Town Council stresses.
North Lincolnshire Council and the Town Council tidy up litter as best they can.
There's also a current project to provide additional bins, including a number at the front of some town centre pubs for discarded 'fag' ends.
Brigg Town Council is also considering the purchase of a machine to help clean the streets.
However, much of this expense would be unnecessary if people used existing litter bins or took items home with them for disposal.
Early one recent morning we saw fast food cartons that had been left the previous evening by people who only had to walk a few yards to put the leftovers in the bin provided near the Tintab shelter on East Park.
That's what the authorities are up against!
Hopefully the weather will be kinder on Saturday than it was when Ken Harrison, of Brigg Matters magazine, took this picture of litter-picking volunteers during an earlier session. However, Mike Campion, left, Donald Campbell, Tina Campbell and Ann Eardley were well wrapped up for the occasion!
