Dursley News - May 2013

May was a pleasant month with a good amount of sunshine. Not too many big events occurred but house construction continued at a fast pace on the Littlecombe site with many new ones appearing on the recently constructed terracing on the North-East side of the site. In town the 'Little Jem' cake shop has completed its move to the adjacent premises and Clifton Cameras' is shortly to expand into the recently vacated premises once occupied by the 'Honey Pot'.
