DSC02456 (2)IMG_4220DSC02457 (2)

A very special event which will be taking place this Saturday in Chapel Court at 3.oopm – for the fourth year running.

This year as in previous years we will be remembering Byron Teague the first Chair of Brigg Town Business partnership and also we will be remembering Dave Dent from Nisa (or if you grew up in Brigg Dave Dent’s) a member of the Partnership and his business was always a generous supporter of the Partnership.  Deb and I will be placing memory cards on the Tree on behalf of the Partnership..

The tree provides an opportunity for all members of the community to place a memory card on it in remembrance of departed loved ones, with cards being available from Saturday November 17th from Design Orchard, Ecigworld, Cure DM (Formerly Rosa), Brigg Carers’ Support Centre, St John’s Church, Brigg, Brigg Methodist Church, The Deli & Diner, Co-op Funeralcare, Naylor’s Funeral Directors, Brigg Tourist Information Centre, Café Courtyard and Essence Beauty. Raffle tickets will also be available for sale from the same businesses/organisations. The winners will be announced on Saturday January 5th 2019 at 3.30pm.

There will also be a Book of Remembrance at The Tourist Information Centre for those who want to record an entry for a loved one in addition to placing a memory card on the tree and the names will be read out on Saturday, 5th January.

All monies raised will be donated to the Brigg Carers’ Support Centre who touch the lives of many local individuals and families during difficult times, and to the Congenital Myotonic Dystrophy Fight – a charity run by Cure DM CIC (Formerly Rosa in Brigg), which helps children suffering from a serious muscle wasting condition and supports local families.

An informal dedication service taken by Father Owain will take place on Saturday November 17th at 3.00pm and will be followed by a final service when the tree lights are switched off on Saturday January 5th at 3.00pm. All are very welcome at both services. The Partnership would like to thank Scunthorpe Rotary Club, Brigg Rotary Cub and Nisa Store (Queen Street, Brigg) for their generous support of the Tree of Light.
