The opportunity has arisen for a new business to take over a vibrant market and auction house in Brigg.

The market site has traditionally opened on Thursdays with a whole host of different goods including fresh produce, poultry and game and complementing the Thursday Market which is held in the pedestrianised town centre.

North Lincolnshire Council is now seeking a suitable partner to deliver a much loved and well attended Thursday auction for Brigg.

Cllr Rob Waltham, leader of North Lincolnshire Council, and ward member for Brigg and the Wolds, says: “This is an exciting opportunity for a new or existing business to take stewardship of one of North Lincolnshire’s many thriving markets.

“As someone who can remember visiting the old Stennetts market on many occasions over the past forty years, I am really keen that we keep up the traditions of this auction and reinstate it as soon as possible.

“We are really keen to open up discussions with prospective businesses as soon as possible.”
