BRIGG is all set to celebrate a unique event next week when the Olympic torch passes through the town on Tuesday, June 26.
After travelling from Scunthorpe, the torch arrives in Brigg at the Ancholme Leisure Centre at 3.42pm and leaves Sir John Nelthorpe School on Wrawby Road at 4.09pm.
From there it goes to Wrawby. It will, therefore, be in Brigg for just under half an hour. Brigg County Primary School will be holding their sports on the morning of the same day.
The Olympic flame was lit in Greece and came over to the UK on May 18.
The flame is being carried far and wide by selected torchbearers.

North Lincolnshire Council is playing a key role in making the Olympic torch relay a spectacle to remember across the region and is encouraging people to make maracas and shakers, hang bunting, bake flame ‘cone-cakes’, plant golden marigolds, dress up in gold and make some noise to welcome and celebrate the torch.
Downloadable tool kits, posters and save the date cards are available to help along the way on the council’s website.
North Lincolnshire are also encouraging people to tell them how they are celebrating, so they can use this to inspire others.
