The Angel in Brigg to be transformed as part of £5m community investment

Work has started to transform The Angel in Brigg, part of a £5 million community investment programme across North Lincolnshire.

The investment sees North Lincolnshire Council develop its community resources across the area. Community hubs will be redeveloped to better meet the needs of the individual communities by improving accessibility and functionality.

Among other things, the new community hub in Brigg will incorporate information, advice and guidance; library services including a children’s library; access to computers; healthy lifestyle advice; reminiscence sessions; coffee mornings; children and adult group activities, and community space.

The first phase at The Angel includes the installation of a Changing Places toilet that is accessible and meets the needs of all people with a disability. Work is due to finish in early February 2020.

Phase two will start on the second floor to transform the space and refurbish the toilets on the first floor. This work is expected to be completed in early April 2020.

The third and final phase will see the rest of the office space on the ground flood, plus the ballroom and basement area refurbished, which is due to finish in June 2020.

Local business Steve Ball Joinery has been contracted to carry out the work.

“This is a significant investment across North Lincolnshire communities that will really benefit our residents,” said Cllr Rob Waltham, Leader of North Lincolnshire Council.

He added: “It is a key milestone in the project seeing work begin at The Angel in Brigg. The community hub in Brigg will be a key asset for people to access services and get the support they need.”
