Dursley News - February 2014

This month saw the annual 'Dursley Dozen' race around the hills and woods surrounding Dursley. Yet again there was rain but it didn't stop a large number of runners attending accompanied by an equally large band of supporters. The run finished in May lane, very close to the the car park where the public conveniences are receiving a major rebuild. Another place getting a renovation is the Market House which is nearing the end of a lengthy repair and redecoration, which will improve the look of both inside and out.
