Dursley News - April 2014

At Dursley CofE Primary Academy, plans are afoot to replace the old canteen with brand new kitchen and dining facilities in the main school block following the successful win of a large grant. Dining will take place in the gym hall and the old changing rooms are being converted to become a kitchen. Elsewhere, demolition is beginning at the Lister site with the destruction of the building most recently used by Deutz. At the same time more foundations are being laid at the Littlecombe end of the site.
