CAN BRIGG HAVE MORE CHRISTMAS TREES ON DISPLAY?
Brigg should have more small Christmas trees on view above shops in the town centre, Coun Ann Eardley has suggested.
Brigg Blog noted in December that only a few were on display when, in Christmases past, there used to be many.
Coun Eardley made here suggestion during Brigg Town Council's January meeting, having spoken to some traders who said they had not been offered the chance to display a tree.
Noting that the supporting poles were still in place on the walls of many business premises, she wondered whether the Christmas tree scheme had been offered to all traders or merely to members of the Brigg Town Business Partnership.
Coun Rob Waltham suggested that matter should be raised with the Partnership. "Everyone must be included," he said.
Coun Eardley went on to suggest the return of a large illuminated tree located near Station Road, which had once been a feature of this part of the town.
She also wondered whether the Angel figure on the front of North Lincolnshire Council's landmark building in the Market Place might be illuminated over the festive period.
Brigg Blog's picture, taken in December 2019, shows Wallhead's shop on the corner of Wrawby Street and Cross Street. While many other shops failed to display a single tree, this long-established and family-run business managed three!
