Calling all Dursley Beekeepers!

Calling all Dursley Beekeepers!

We would like to encourage pollinators at our Kingshill allotment site and have agreed to offer a previously disused area as a designated beekeeping plot.

The tenancy is very similar to that for an allotment plot but with some specific requirements related to beekeeping, the main ones are as follows:

· Beekeeping for enjoyment/the production of honey for domestic consumption by yourself or family members. More »

· Restrictions on the number of hives.

· Experience - you must be either experienced, be working towards a British Beekeepers Association (BBKA) qualification and /or have close guidance from an experienced beekeeper.

· Insurance – you must hold a relevant public liability insurance policy which provides specifically for beekeeping risk. (It is preferred that you are a member of the British Beekeepers Association, which may provide such cover for their members; or at least be a member of a local beekeeping group.)

A copy of the full tenancy is available on request. If you are a Dursley resident and you are interested in the opportunity, please get in touch with the Council office to find out more. » Less

Town Councillors - An Update

Dursley Town Council have two new Town Councillors and said goodbye to one of our existing Councillors.

Councillor Jan Burdge has resigned from Council following the decision to move to Somerset. Jan, who was in her second spell as Town Councillor will be missed by her fellow Councillors and staff, but we all wish her well in her upcoming move.

The Town Council have co-opted two new persons to Council. Councillor Tyler White was co-opted at our August meeting and most recently Councillor Danae Savvidou at our September meeting. More »

Cllr Savvidou is seen signing her declaration of acceptance earlier today.

All Town Councillor positions will be re-elected in May 2021, a delay caused by the lockdown restrictions in May 2020. If anyone is interested in becoming a Councillor now or in the future then please contact the Town Clerk for more information. » Less
