Dursley News - June 2015

There have been plenty of shop renovations in Dursley recently, a good sign for the town. The San Remo restaurant has had a complete makeover and reopened as Della Casa, the Oxfam shop has been smartened up after several weeks' closure, the Dil Raj restaurant looks completely different and the town's card shop, 'Just to Say', has also been repainted and has a new sign.

Move away from the centre of the town and demolition of the last remaining buildings on the Lister site is complete and it stands empty. Plans are in place for construction of new houses and a road which will go through the centre of the site.
