Dursley News - December 2020

As the year comes to an end, and the pandemic is once again gathering pace across the nation, things in Dursley are again going into a tiered 'lockdown' with travel further restricted and Christmas plans in disarray for many. Perhaps bringing a very slight relief and an opportunity to escape to the past, the new Dursley Lantern has been published and is available from a few of the shops in town or can also be obtained by post.
