Dursley News - December 2012

The lead up to Christmas saw a number of activities in town, including a Christmas tree event in the Methodist Church, which allowed local clubs and societies to decorate a tree and display information for members of the public. At the same time a new exhibition went on display at the Heritage Centre demonstrating the work of Years 5 and 6 from Dursley C of E Primary School. The displays, which resulted from their work on 'Victorian Dursley', was received very well by visitors and locals alike.

Vale Vision shop to close
December saw the announcement of the closure of the premises of Vale Vision (28 Long Street) which was first opened in April 2006. The closure will be effective from the end of January 2013 but should not affect the group's ability to continue to work on a number of community based projects.

The move of Phillip Ford, the undertaker, from the old office block once occupied by Champion & Hall (on the right here) has allowed the Little Jem cake shop to take over the adjacent premises and move into part of it.

    Water Street
This building on the right is on the site of the former Twemlow Chapel in Water Street. It is now being restored inside so hopefully there should be some visible signs of improvement before long.
