Brigg will not be going down a ‘Brigg in Bloom’ route - at least in 2014.
At the Town Council Policy Committee meeting in The Angel Suite, Coun Chris Dyson reported on a workshop he had attended giving details of the Royal Horticultural Society in Bloom project - the scheme that has proved so successful in Caistor.
He felt an involvement by Brigg would encourage civic pride, help develop tourism and engender a sense of well being within the community.
He told colleagues entries are expected to be a community initiative and not led by the local authority.
Coun Dyson’s report led to a lengthy debate as to whether there should be such a move from Brigg, where the floral displays had been led for many years by the town council.
And while Coun Dyson’s report and suggestions were welcomed, it was resolved the information should be relayed to the wider community.
So, for 2014 at least, the arrangements will remain with the Town Council, but that did not rule out consideration of a ‘Brigg in Bloom’ group leading in 2015 or beyond.
