Dursley News - February 2020

Pancake races took place once again in Dursley on Shrove Tuesday, with many costumed runners taking on the competition for the run along Parsonage Street. The weather wasn't great but no-one got too wet. Elsewhere in town the weather did have an effect as one of the large trees alongside Kingshill Road was brought down by the wind. There'll be no more colourful cherry blossom from that one!
