Listen out for Nottinghamshire accents in Brigg town centre next time you are out shopping on a Saturday.
On Twitter, Paul Johnson, of the Friends of the Brigg & Lincoln Line railway support group, has shared a picture of one of the posters on display in Worksop.
Folk from the Notts town can buy an adult return train ticket to Brigg for just £11.10p.
That seems top value to Brigg Blog, and we trust there will be plenty of takers.



Now serving meals, the Britannia Inn, on Wrawby Street, Brigg, is looking for a part-time cook/chef.
The job will include working evenings and weekends. Call 01652 653129.
Due to a manic working week, Brigg Blog hasn't had time to pop in for a bite to eat since they launched the menu on Monday.
However, we have a copy of the menu and it's impressive, featuring a good deal of local produce, including meat from Barnard's, on Bridge Street.
Who's for Lincolnshire Lamb's Liver & Onions?

An advertisement consent application for one illuminated free-standing pylon sign at the Lidl store, on Atherton Way, Brigg, was discussed by Brigg Town Council's Planning  and Environment Committee during a meeting in the Angel Suite.
Town councillors raised no objections and the application now passes to North Lincolnshire Council planners for a final decision.
