Dursley News - December 2015

The Christmas season has arrived and the lights are up all around town, giving an attractive glow to the streets. That doesn't mean that work has stopped elsewhere, though it's certainly slowed things down. The new swimming pool access ramp is up and running allowing the old ramp area to be redeveloped for the Sports centre extension. On the Littlecombe site almost all traces of Lister's have now gone and the Long Street end of the site is occupied by large heaps of soil which has been moved from other parts of the site.
