Dursley News - May 2007

The month of May saw the steady removal of the scaffolding and temporary covering which had been placed over the roof of St. James' Church during its recent renovation. Many of the roof tiles were signed by local people so one can only guess at what will be made of that whenever they are eventually replaced in the distant future.

On Whiteway Hill in Woodmancote, several mature trees have been cleared along the roadside resulting in the view across the fields being opened up.

Elsewhere around town, work is proceeding at a fast pace on the Newland Meadows development alongside Yellow Hundred as well as on the adjoining Crest Nicholson site. On the Lister/Littlecombe site much of the landscaping has been completed at the Cam end of the site and its appearance is now very different from just a few years ago.
