|Dursley News - July 2005|
The month of July saw Dursley's annual Festival take place. A whole raft of different events including exhibitions of work by different artists, an evening ramble, a talk on "Coughs, Bugs and Waterworks" in the town hall, dance workshops plus many more. The week concluded on Saturday 16th with entertainment on the recreation ground, a parade through the town, exhibitions on the history of the town's fire service and "Wartime Dursley" plus many stalls along Parsonage Street. Luckily the weather remained fine all day.
Elsewhere, the new library continues to take shape and the housing development on the old Bymacks site saw some work close to where a new junction will be formed with Uley Road.
The biggest other news for the month was that Tesco are to purchase the
Coop in Cam which may put the regeneration plans for Dursley's town centre
on hold as they had been the prime contender for the new supermarket there.
Time will tell what happens!
