Dursley News - June 2018

June was another glorious month with high temperatures and clear blue skies. Progress continued unabated on the Littlecombe site with work beginning on the realignment of the access to Drake House. This will make way for the new road through the centre of the site, which will eventually join up with Lister Road and the Vale Hospital.

Elsewhere the old Starkey Van Hire site in Woodmancote is closed and is due for redevelopment as new housing. The tower of St James' Church also still remains shrouded with scaffolding.
