BRIGG PUBS REMAIN OPEN BUT MANY TOWN EVENTS ARE CANCELLED
Pubs and bars in Brigg will be open this weekend as the country continues to be on Coronavirus alert.
Live music gigs planned for Saturday (March 21) at the Woolpack, Brigg & District Servicemen's Club and Brigg Town FC's Hawthorns clubhouse have been cancelled, while the Dying Gladiator has suspended its popular karaoke sessions for the time being. However, live music at The Glad will continue via the jukebox.
All the town's licensed premises remain open if you want to pop in for a pint.
Brigg people will make their own minds up about whether they still wish to visit local bars or attend events that have not been cancelled by the organisers.
If you are feeling off-colour and showing symptoms like a cough, sore throught and/or fever, don't venture out.
The government has now granted permission for pubs (serving food) and restaurants to operate as takeaways as part of its response to what is described as the Coronavirus outbreak. Planning rules have been 'relaxed' so this can happen without delay.
At weekends, Pips Kitchen (Brigg Town FC) will be delivering breakfasts. Call 07714767820 or 07713 627639 between 9am and 12.30pm, Saturdays and Sundays. It is still open as usual at the Hawthorns if you want to visit.
ALL the town's shops (large and small), pubs and other businesses will value your custom during what's clearly a period of uncertainty.
