Dursley News - February 2018

With the days getting slightly longer and brighter it feels as if spring is starting to make an appearance. The Dursley Dozen for 2018 took place on 11th February with an increased field and it was good to see Dursley Running Club take 1st and 2nd place overall. Work is also continuing at a great rate on the new infrastructure and housing of the Littlecombe site - most noticeably the bridge which will carry the main road is now complete.
