Shop safe and smart in Brigg

14:50, Friday, 19th June 2020

Businesses in Brigg are welcoming back shoppers this week as restrictions on opening have been lifted.

Traders have been working hard to ensure their premises are Covid secure so they can welcome customers back safely. As well as new social distancing measures in shops, North Lincolnshire Council has put up extra signage around the town to remind people to act responsibly.

Brigg Town Business Partnership members, which includes most of the shops in the town, have signed a pledge to go the extra mile to keep customers and staff safe when they visit the town’s independent shops.

Brigg market has reopened on Thursdays, with traders and customers all sticking to the guidelines allowing safe shopping.

The Brigg for Business, Events & Community page on Facebook has details of which shops are open when.

Deb Dunderdale, Chair of the Brigg Town Business Partnership, said:

“Our members have worked hard to make Brigg shops a caring and safe place, giving confidence to shoppers to encourage them to return to the town and shop safe and smart in Brigg. Shop local and independent.

Cllr Rob Waltham, Leader of North Lincolnshire Council, said:

“Our local businesses need your support more than ever. A great deal of work has gone into making shopping safe and if people follow the guidelines then we can stop Covid and prevent a local outbreak.

“As a resident of Brigg I will be playing my part and shopping locally.”
