Dursley News - February 2011

February saw the occurence of the annual 'Dursley Dozen', a tough 12 mile race around the hills and woods. Nearly 400 runners and their supporters came to the town for the race which was unfortunately a wet one after the previous sunny Saturday.

The appearance of the new community hospital is changing again as the days get longer and drier allowing progress to pick up at an even greater rate. Similarly, more noticeable progress is now being made on the houses in May Lane which stood unfinished for well over a year after the original builder went out of business.
