NEW YEAR'S HONOUR FOR ACTRESS WHO LAUNCHED BRIGG DEVELOPMENT
Congratulations from Brigg go to well-known actress Wendy Craig who features in the New Year's Honours List 2020.
As an ambassador for the Golden Living company, Wendy officially opened the town's Ancholme Mews for the over 50s.
She came to launch the housing development, off Bigby Street, one hot and sunny Saturday morning back in July 2008.
A star who featured in popular TV series like Butterflies and The Royal, Wendy, now 85, becomes a Commander of the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire (CBE).
In December 2008 she made a return visit to the Brigg development, meeting some of the residents, and said: "The apartments are beautiful and set in lovely surroundings – a great place to relax during retirement.”
