SAMANTHA CAMERON REGISTERS BUSINESS IN BRIGG
BY NIGEL FISHER, BRIGG BLOG
One of Britain’s best-dressed and best-known women has chosen to register her new business venture in Brigg, the Daily Mail has reported in print and online.
We were very pleasantly suprised to read the news in Sebastian Shakespeare’s column in the Mail.
The wife of the former Prime Minister is forecast to be entering the business world of stylish fashion.
Why she chose Brigg above all other towns and cities has not been revealed – yet.
Quite possibly we will never know.
Her father, Sir Reginald Sheffield, of course, has close connections with North Lincolnshire – notably in the Normanby area, near Scunthorpe.
“Sam Cam” – as the national media loves to call her – has perhaps been to Brigg in the past, though we can’t recall attending any events she’s graced or having seen her on any pictures taken within the town’s boundary.
Now she’s paid Brigg a huge compliment by registering her company here, a visit – or return visit – would be nice. Here are a few suggestions of things she might try…
SAMANTHA CAMERON’S SUGGESTED ‘LIKES’ LIST IN BRIGG
- Take a look at Brigg’s one-time fashion capital on Bridge Street, the former Corah’s factory, where garments were manufactured until it closed in the 1970s. Over many years, councillors have been hoping to see this long-neglected site redeveloped and put to good use. It was a big employer of mostly female labour in its glory days and was known locally as The Stocking Factory.
- Join the Brigg Town Business Partnership – open to people with companies.
- Tour the Buttercross – now almost 200 years old and famously opened by Lady Diana, The Princess of Wales.
- Visit the Exchange Coach House, where Winston Churchill once stayed when Britain’s war-time Prime Minister
- Stock up the larder at Brigg Farmers’ Market. Bound to be something tasty for the family table.
- Take a tour of Hewson House, on Station Road, which her father will have visited during his time as an area councillor.
- Call in at the Brigg office of Andrew Percy MP – a Conservative who served in the House of Commons with her husband.
- Pop in for a coffee at Costa, on Wrawby Street.
- Admire the view of the river from the new Ancholme Way, with seating close to the County Bridge
- Enjoy a drink and perhaps a chat at the Yarborough Hunt, which has historic links to another aristocratic family
