Welcome to Michigan’s Great Britton! We are a small farming community with friendly faces. We are always willing to lend a helping hand when needed and meet a new friend. We are proud to say that many of the current residents in our village are direct descendents of its founders.
Check your local businesses and the library to find postcards that you can turn in for a prize. Remember to bring new toys to the Britton Elevator, the Village Council Room or the library for the Elevator's Toy Drive. The library has several activities in December. See their website for more details.

With colder weather fast approaching, snow removal will be here before we know it. You are responsible for removing snow and ice from your sidewalks. Snow cannot be plowed into the roads. Please be considerate of everyone who uses the sidewalks this winter.
If you are interested in plowing driveways or sidewalks, please put a flyer up on the Village Bulletin Board. Many residents have inquired about these services.
