It was really heartening to see such a large attendance for the Remembrance Sunday 2019 commemorations in Brigg yesterday (November 10) and particularly the number of young people who took part in the parade or joined the sizeable crowds watching the wreath-laying that followed at the Monument war memorial.
Here are 50 pictures Brigg Blog took on Sunday at various locations.

Brigg Blog took advantage of the £1 bacon buttie offer available at the Britannia Inn - the closest pub to the war memorial.
Tea and coffee was provided free of charge in return for a donation to the Poppy Appeal.
There was also a lunch-time get-together at Brigg & District Servicemen's Club on Coney Court, in support of Help For Heroes. Jackie Harness provided a buffet and £183 was raised for this very worthy cause.
During the Service of Remembrance at St John's Church, a collection was taken for the Royal British Legion Poppy Appeal.

The biggest poppy on show was on the front door of what's now known as Sutton Bean House (pictured below) - just  a stone's throw from the Monument and adjoining the arch which gives rear access to the Britain
Many people contributed to the efficient organisation of Brigg's Sunday of Remembrance, including Brigg Town Council and volunteers who assisted with the very necessary road closures along the A18 and A1084.
100 years on from Alderman Harry Stamp's donation - the Monument memorial - we should not forget his generosity in 1919.
