Dursley News - January 2014

January was a month of rain, some heavy and some showery, with occasional sunny spells that broght some dramatic views across the wooded hillsides around the small valley in which Dursley and Cam lie. Nevertheless work slowly started to pick up after the Christmas break, most notably on the new housing development at Littlecombe which seems to look different every week as more foundations get laid and more brickwork goes up.
