Dursley News - April 2011

April 2011 was the hottest April on record with plenty of sun and almost no rain throughout the month. The big event of course was the Royal Wedding on Friday 29th April and there were several street parties in the area, the most noticeable being the one outside The King's Head in Parsonage Street. Elsewhere the sun resulted in wonderful colours and great views all around the area, particularly in the local woods and Cam Peak with their carpets of bluebells.

Elsewhere, there are daily visible signs of change at the sites of the new Community Hospital and the development of new houses next to the library which now seem to be close to completion at long last.

    May Lane houses
Tarmac goes down on the access road into the small development of new houses, next to the library in May Lane. After a very long development it looks like these houses are nearing completion at last.
