Shop Local – support your Town Centre safely and tell us about your favourite businesses

Shop Local – support your Town Centre safely and tell us about your favourite businesses

Dursley Town Council are supporting a new campaign by Stroud District Council by getting behind shops and businesses with its Shop Local campaign, as lockdown eases.

The Shop Local campaign is simple - we want shoppers to be able to shop and eat safely, and businesses to trade profitably and safely, to help restart the local economy.

The council is calling on shoppers to tag their favourite stores and traders to tell us how they are getting on, using #ShopLocal or #ShopDursley (for example) on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram and LinkedIn, and sharing council posts. More »

"Together we can help our town centres thrive again," said Stroud District Council Leader and Dursley Councillor Doina Cornell. "It's really important that we shop and trade safely, and support businesses which are the lifeblood of the communities we live and work in.

"If you have a favourite shop or eating out spot, or know of a business going the extra mile, do let us know about it on our social media channels."

The campaign is run by Stroud District Council and part-funded by the European Regional Development Fund through the Government's Reopening of High Streets Fund. » Less

Playgrounds and Gym Equipment Re-open on 4th July

Playgrounds and Gym Equipment Re-open on 4th July

Dursley Town Council will re-open the playgrounds and gym equipment at the War Memorial Recreation Ground, Highfields and Kingshill from 4th July in line with the governments recent announcement.

It is impossible to fully negate all risks of contracting the Covid-19 virus (or other infection) at a place like a playground, which can be frequented by large numbers of people, who may have differing views about social distancing and hygiene. It is also unclear how long the coronavirus can live on plastic, timber and metal playground structures. More »

Therefore Dursley Town Council would advise all visitors to:

Maintain 2m social distancing with other users.
Keep your face and hands as clean as possible. Bring your own hand sanitising.
Avoid crowded spaces, if the equipment is busy consider coming back later.
If any family member is experiencing COVID-19 symptoms the whole family must self-isolate at home and should not visit any communal facilities » Less

Tidy Dursley - Thank You

Tidy Dursley - Thank You

Dursley Town Council would like to say a big thank you to the 21 volunteers who spent a few hours picking up litter and removing weeds on Father's Day.

The volunteers managed to fill 43 black bags which has made such a difference to The Slade, part of May Lane, Boulton Lane and Henlow Drive. They also uncovered many hidden and blocked drains, details of which have been passed to GCC Highways to clear. More »

Some of the volunteers are pictured with the lead organiser of the group, local resident Helen Patrick.

The group are planning another day in July, details of which will be posted on local social media forums. » Less
