Roundabout Cat - Memorial Plaque

Roundabout Cat - Memorial Plaque

Dursley Town Council was recently contacted by a local resident who had raised money from the local community to commemorate a local celebrity "Roundabout Cat" aka Ginger who sadly had died a few weeks ago.

Ginger was regularly seen crossing the roundabout at the Bull Pitch/Woodmancote junction.

When asked if the Town Council would agree to a memorial plaque on the nearby bench, the Chair of Town Improvements, Cllr Wendy Thomas said "I loved that cat, I think his sad demise has brought the community together" and permission was quickly given for a plaque on the bench.

The plaque, kindly supplied by Classy Glass & Awards Ltd has now been fixed to the bench. The funds raised are being shared between local animal charities.
