TOP SCORE: North Lincolnshire Council continues to carry out routine food hygiene inspections at premises across its area. Following a recent visit, the Scalinis fast food takeaway at 49 High Street, Broughton (pictured above) has been awarded five stars and rated "very good" for food hygiene.

FREE FOOD: The council is reminding people that free breakfasts are available at the Brigg Community Hub in the Angel complex, Market Place, every Thursday during August (including tomorrow) and then on September 1, between 9.30am and 11am. People can "drop in for Breakfast and Books, and enjoy browsing in the Library." All children, their families and carers are welcome.

DECISIONS PENDING: Two Brigg & Wolds Ward applications will be among those considered by North Lincolnshire Council's Planning Committee when it meets today (Wednesday, August 3) from 2pm.
Approval is being sought to erect a two-storey rear extension to the dwelling and a two-storey double garage, and carry out internal alterations and associated works (including the demolition of the existing outbuildings) at 57 Main Street, Saxby All Saints.
Permission is also being requested to erect a dwelling on land to the west of Sherwood House, The Hill, Worlaby.

LOCATION, LOCATION: Glanford Road, Brigg, has 'lost' one of its nameplates. The fittings are still there, but not the all-important top section informing pedestrians and drivers approaching along Wrawby Road (the A18). The now-missing nameplate, on the southern side of Glanford Road, is of the ornate type used to indicate streets in, and near, the town centre.

ADDED SPACE: West Lindsey District Council has granted planning permission for a single-storey extension to form an annexe at Fieldside, Brigg Road, North Kelsey.
