Tree of Light – Chapel Court, Brigg

As part of our Christmas campaign Brigg Town Business Partnership is for the very first time organising a Tree of Light or a Remembrance Tree.

This tree will stand proudly in Chapel Court (just off the Old Courts car park), it will be lit from Friday, December 4th until Wednesday 6th January 2016.  Hopefully this will be seen as a symbol of hope and comfort for the many people who find Christmas a sad and lonely time.

This provides an opportunity for all members of the community to place a memory card on the tree in remembrance of departed loved ones.  The cards can be found at Design Orchard, Rosa (Chapel Court), Brigg Tourist Information, St John’s Church, Brigg and Brigg Methodist Church.

All monies raised will be donated to the Carers’ Support Centre in Brigg they touch the lives of many local individuals and families through difficult times and beyond.

An informal dedication service will take place on Saturday, 5th December at 11.00am followed by a final service when the tree lights are switched off on 6th January at 6.00pm.  See Event Details Here

All are very welcome.

Don’t forget late night opening for the shops and market stalls in Brigg on Thursday, 17th December until 8.30pm.

Winners of the Christmas windows competition will be announced before Christmas please look out for general advertising to keep up to date and for further information.
