Town Centre: Improvements

Town Centre: Improvements

The Town Council's ground staff over the last few weeks have taken advantage of the wet, cold weather to commence with some much needed maintenance of the street furniture in the town centre.

A number of the benches have been removed from site, stripped down, repaired, painted and given a new lease of life. The noticeboard in "the link" has also received essential maintenance ensuring it is now safe to use. More »

Over the spring period the remaining benches, which can't be easily moved from site will also be repaired and painted and the Lister street furniture will receive a fresh coat of paint, the first time since their installation in the early 2000's.

The increase in ground staff as part of our commitment to the town's public spaces has allowed for this maintenance to be carried out. The ground staff are responsible for the regular watering of the planters and hanging baskets planted by Dursley In Bloom.

The Town Council have appointed Ironcrafts (Stroud) Ltd as our preferred supplier for a new railing on Castle Street to enhance the visual appearance of this area of the town. A final design is still to be agreed, but the railing will include "Dursley" and be suitable for flower baskets to be situated, making a nice town centre feature. » Less

High Sheriff Award: PCSO Josh Griffiths

High Sheriff Award: PCSO Josh Griffiths

The Town Council are pleased to announce that our former PCSO Josh Griffiths has been awarded a High Sheriff Award for his excellent efforts while based within the Dursley Neighbourhood Police team.

The role of High Sheriff has evolved over time, but is rooted almost 1,000 years ago in Saxon times. The modern High Sheriff actively lends support to crime prevention agencies, the emergency services and the voluntary sector, helping with crime reduction initiatives, especially with young people.

The current High Sheriff is Lt Col Andrew Tabor JP and a key role of this position is "to actively support and promote the voluntary sector, giving all possible encouragement to the voluntary organisations within Gloucestershire" which the award represents.

PCSO Griffiths was nominated by Dursley Town and Gloucestershire County Councillor Loraine Patrick who stated "I am pleased Josh has been recognised by the High Sheriff for his efforts over the previous ten years in Dursley. He has been missed by colleagues and the town since departing for a similar role in the Forest of Dean at the end of 2017". » Less
