Brigg Town Council is planning some new 'green' initiatives to help the environment this year. Funds have been allocated in the budget for the 2021/22 financial year to make these possible.
Provision of 'Shop Local' hessian bags is planned with the aim of making Brigg a 'plastic-free town'.
A Water Refill Centre will be established in the town centre where people can top up their refreshment bottles. This will also help to tackle the use of throwaway plastic containers.
Periodic cleaning of the River Ancholme is to continue through a Town Council contract, and healthy walks outdoors will be encouraged by 'finger posts' indicating various town walking routes leading to the countryside.
Floral displays are planned to add a touch of colour to the town, with provision made for these blooms to be watered on a regular basis.
