Dursley News - March 2018

The weather made itself felt this month as temperatures dropped and on two occasions several inches of snow fell to cover the town and the surrounding hills, each lasting several days. There was widespread disruption across the country and locally schools were closed and numerous events were cancelled. However at the end of the month the sun came out again and better weather returned.
