Posada brings the Christmas story


Brigg Christmas Posada has begun.

Figures of Mary and Joseph will be hosted at various resting places provided by the community, including its retail outlets.

The journey started at the Brigg Christmas Fair last Friday and will end on Christmas Eve in St John’s Church.

The Posada borrows the idea of commemorating Mary and Joseph’s journey to Bethlehem from Spanish and Mexican traditions and makes it special to Brigg.

The Brigg Town Business Partnership would like to give special thanks to Brown and Co for their generous sponsorship and support which is greatly appreciated.

Partnership spokesperson Jane Kitching said: “We could not put this on without the unstinting work of our enthusiastic and hardworking committee; it’s subscribing members, and the collaboration of Brigg Town Council, North Lincolnshire Council and friends including Brigg Rotary.

“The partnership is looking for more local representatives to work with the committee.

“Please approach one of these contacts below in the first instance - Malcolm Bailey, Chair on 07946 109069 or Jane Kitching, Vice Chair on 07442 160785; alternatively email briggisbest@gmail.com.”
