Exhibitions planned for later in 2017 include an opportunity to view bound volumes of the Dursley Gazette, many of which are now held in store by the Heritage Centre. Most copies between 1950 and 1971 are available and some of these will be on view between March and May.
During the summer months, June, July and August, it is intended to commemorate the 150th anniversary of the start of R.A. Lister & Co. an important part of Dursley’s history. If anyone has anything of interest please do get on touch.
Following on from the Lister exhibition, the old cloak once worn by the Bailiff of Dursley will be on view. This bright red cloak was worn by the last Bailiff when the post was discontinued in 1896 and has been recently restored.
An ongoing small exhibition commemorates those men (and one woman) from Dursley, who died during the equivalent three month period one hundred years ago. If anyone has any information about anyone we’d love to hear from you.
