Brigg Tourist Information Centre will re-open in November – bringing services back into the community.
Staff will be on hand to offer advice and services from the Buttercross – for example the popular service selling tickets for local events will continue – supporting many of Brigg’s community groups. Digital displays will be used to promote local events and leaflets will be available.
It comes as a new community hub will be opened at the Angel in the town. The new facility will open after an extensive refurbishment which is part of North Lincolnshire Council’s wider £5m community investment programme.
The council had been working with Lindsey Lodge Hospice to open a shop at the Buttercross but current challenges means this won’t now happen.
Cllr Rob Waltham, Leader of North Lincolnshire Council said:
“The Buttercross and the Tourist information centre are an important part of the Brigg community offer. Covid restrictions means that things will be slightly different when we reopen, however visitors to the town will still be able to gain the support they need.”
“We know that some residents had some concerns about supporting Lindsey Lodge hospice, however I believe they are an incredible charity that works tirelessly for people who need the most help and support. We will of course continue to work closely with them as they look to get another shop back in the town.”
