Dursley News - September 2005

Plenty of progress on the old Bymacks site this month. Houses are springing and the access road through from Uley Road has started to make an appearance. This road has a fairly steep slope down through the site although use is being made of the natural contours in reducing this as far as possible in the confined space.

In the Kingshill area, the Kwiksave store which has existed in one form or another since the Regal cinema closed down has changed its name to Somerfield. It also had a complete facelift, inside and out, in the space of a week.
