Lions Club of Dursley - Thank You

Lions Club of Dursley - Thank You

Dursley Town Council would like to thank the Lions Club of Dursley for volunteering to paint our BT telephone kiosk which hosts our community defibrillator.

In 2017 with advice and support from the Community Heartbeat Trust, the Town Council successfully obtained funding for the purchase and installation of a defibrillator and security cabinet from the National Lottery's Award for All grant scheme. It was agreed the best location to host the defibrillator would be in the recently adopted BT telephone kiosk. More »

The preparation and painting has been carried out by Peter Hayes, a Town Councillor and member of the Lions Club of Dursley.

The paint was kindly sponsored by AkzoNobel, a member of the British Coatings Federation, which formed part of our successful grant from the National Lottery. » Less

Dursley Mini Hare Trail: Now Open

Dursley Mini Hare Trail: Now Open

The Town Mayor officially launched the Dursley Mini Hare Trail this morning (Friday) to an audience of sponsors and hosts for our eight Cotswold Hares located in the Dursley area.

Mayor Grecian said "the hares will be residents in the town until 9th September 2018 when they will become available to buy at a charity auction hosted by the Cotswold AONB. There are lots of information for the event on both the Cotswold AONB and Dursley Town Council websites". More »

The Dursley Mini Hare Trail is now open for young people (aged under 16 years). The challenge is to find all 8 hares in Dursley and record the name of the hare and the unique code – this information is displayed on nearby posters near where the hare is situated.

All entries should be returned to the Town Council by email or post. Each correct entry will receive a special signed mayoral certificate. Entry Forms are available in the Town Council office, some host venues and on the Town Council website.

The Hare Trial would not be possible without the help from local businesses and other organisations, including both Gloucestershire County Council and Stroud District Council.

The Mayor formally thanked the management and staff of the following businesses and organisations whom have agreed to sponsor and/or host a hare: St Modwen Homes, Ashen Plains Campsite, Kingshill House, Futura Foods, Hunters Estate Agent, Dursley Town Trust, The Pulse Leisure Centre, Dursley Library and B Walker Ltd. » Less
