Dursley News - July 2013

Fine weather was the order of the day during July with temperatures getting into the 30's (Celsius). Consequently there was plenty of opportunity for people to get out and about and enjoy the surroundings. This great weather also allowed work to continue at a fast pace on the new developments at Littlecombe, especially on the new bridge which is being built across the stream which flows through the site.

After many years in post the vicar of St. James' Church, Janet Bromley, has retired and to commemorate the event a well attended hog roast was held in the churchyard grounds.
