A call for Brigg people to be 'good neighbours'  by shopping for others and fetching medication for them during the Coronavirus emergency was made during the Town Council's monthly meeting, held on Monday evening (March 23).
North Lincolnshire Council Leader Coun Rob Waltham, who lives in Brigg, also made reference to a 'hub' being set up to help local people and stressed that North Lincolnshire Council "is still very much working."
Cabinet colleague on the unitary authority, Coun Carl Sherwood (Brigg & Wolds), said garden waste (brown bin) collections had been suspended, but general waste and recycling bins and boxes would continue to be emptied.
The household waste centre near Broughton - serving the Brigg area - remains open.
Please note that the Lincsquad group's Keyo Brigg Bomber Quadrathlon 2020 - due to be held in May - has now been cancelled due to the current emergency.
A major spectator event based at Ancholme Leisure Centre in Scawby Brook, it would have involved competitors undertaking a 1.5k river swim, travelling 38k by bike, 7k in a kayak and completing a 10k run.
The Keyo Brigg Bomber Standard Distance Triathlon 2020 on the same day is also off.
