Dursley News - December 2013

December was busy in Dursley and Cam with preparations for the Christmas period although many of the building projects came to a halt for a while. That said, progress on the new houses at Littlecombe seems to be progressing at a very fast rate and much of the newly constructed terracing is now covered with houses in various stages of completion. In the centre of town the old fire bell has made a welcome reappearance on the top of the market House following extensive repair and a sojourn in the Heritage Centre.
