Dursley News - December 2019

There was plenty of rain during December - streams and rivers were high and a lot of water was seen on the ground as it couldn't easily run away. As the Christmas break came so work temporarily halted on the town's construction projects - though much progress can still be seen at Littlecombe and the small development on Woodmancote, once the site of Starkey's van hire.
