Two more Brigg pubs have now indicated that they will be reopening on Saturday (July 4) - a date that is being described in the national press as Super Saturday.
The Black Bull, on Wrawby Street,  and the Lord Nelson, in the Market Place, will
 be serving drinks from then - the first day permitted under the government's latest, less stringent, Coronavirus emergency measures.
The Nelson will will be offering  roasts to diners on Sunday (July 5), from noon to 4pm.
On the other side of the Market Place, landlady Sarah Hardy (pictured above yesterday) will be reopening her Woolpack to drinkers on Saturday.
Interior refurbishment has been undertaken at the Woolie during lockdown, and the rear beer garden also has a new look.
Sarah, who chairs Brigg Pubwatch representing local licensees, has re-positioned tables inside the historic hostelry in line with the new requirements, and hand sanitiser will be available.
She says that although card payments by customers are preferred, cash will be accepted.
Brigg Blog understands that should also be the case at a number of other bars in the area.

Not all the licensed premises in Brigg and district will be reopening on day one. Further updates to come on our blog later in the week.

Saying it with flowers: Hanging baskets adding colour to the Lord Nelson in Brigg town centre which will be reopening on Saturday, July 4.
