Dursley News - December 2017

December felt like a 'proper' winter as snow fell in the area on two occasions, though it just missed Christmas day itself. Up to two inches fell in town which provided an opportunity to view some great scenes. Snowmen appeared in many places and the sledges came out after a long period of disuse. On the Littlecombe site, despite the snow, progress continued with the new bridge and house construction in the lead up to Christmas.
