Town Councillors: Telephone Calls

Town Councillors: Telephone Calls

It has been brought to the attention of the Town Council that some residents have received telephone calls from someone impersonating Town Councillors.

The calls have been about bank and shop closures in the town. These calls appear to be fraudulent and at no time have the Town Councillors or staff been calling residents in this manner.

We would advise anyone who receives a call to end the conservation as soon as possible and not to provide any personal information. More »

The local police have been notified and if you can provide any additional information please contact the police on the non-emergency telephone number 101. » Less

National Lockdown: Stay at Home

National Lockdown: Stay at Home

The Government has announced a National Lockdown.

You must stay at home. The single most important action we can all take is to stay at home to protect the NHS and save lives.

You should follow the Government's new guidance immediately. The law will be updated to reflect these new rules.

Dursley Town Council has closed the tennis courts and outdoor gym equipment on the War Memorial Recreation Ground in line with the new guidance. More »

The main restrictions are summarised below, to read what you can and cannot do during the lockdown in full, please visit:


  • Stay Home – only leave for work (if you cannot work from home), essential shopping, exercise or medical appointments.
  • Exercise allowed outdoors once a day, in your local area. You can exercise with your household, support bubble, or one other person.
  • Schools are closed except for vulnerable children and children of critical workers. Universities and colleges closed.
  • No household mixing indoors or outdoors unless in your support or childcare bubble.
  • Non-essential shops, leisure and entertainment venues closed.
  • Pubs and restaurants closed but takeaway food permitted.
  • People who are Clinically Extremely Vulnerable should not attend work, school, college or university, and should limit the time spent outside the home, only going out for medical appointments, exercise or if it is essential.

Approximately 1 in 3 people who have coronavirus have no symptoms and could be spreading it without realising. Remember 'Hands. Face. Space'.
