Dursley News - June 2016

June was Town Festival month and the weather this year was good, bringing large crowds to enjoy the demonstrations, the stalls and the food produced by local businesses. The heritage Centre stayed open all day allowing many more people than normal to visit and see something of the area's extensive and varied history. Elsewhere the new sports centre nears completion and work continues on the new residential developments in Long Street and the Littlecombe site.
