The second phase of Brigg Heritage Centre has been opened by Brigg MP Andrew Percy and he was delighted to do the honours.

“Thank you to all of you who have made this development happen,” said Mr Percy, as he unveiled a plaque in the corridor separating the new area from the first phase, opened earlier this year.

“Phase 2 is looking really good and a lot of credit must be given to the volunteers.

“I also thank North Lincolnshire Council and the roles played by Coun Carl Sherwood and Coun Rob Waltham whose idea it was to take on this Heritage Centre project; there is a lot going on in Brigg, all helping to develop tourism.”

Mayor of North Lincolnshire Peter Clark said: “It is a great idea to collect all these artefacts and display them. Bringing children in here to teach them the town’s history is also excellent - they can learn about all the old pubs in Brigg.”

Head of Brigg St Mary’s Primary School Tony Norton was one of the first to look around.

He added his support to the venture: “This is a lovely little museum with lots of interesting items for children to look at and learn from. I hope they will come and enjoy the experience.”
