TETBURY Town Council discussed and voted to support the Chamber of Commerce petition over the increasing car parking fees by 30 percent put forward by Cotswold District Council, writes Kevin Painter

The petition will now be available on the town council’s website, and a hard copy will be available at the Visitor Information Centre, Fillys and Henrietta’s House.

Tetbury Mayor Anne Pearce said 'She was pleased that the council voted to get behind this as it shows support for the town and its businesses’.

There will be a link to the change.org online petition to sign by a simple click, available on the Tetbury Town Council website.

Interestingly the whole committee voted for this with one councillor objecting.

GOOD news as Will Cook continues with the children’s playground at the Station Yard play area to complement the Tetbury Goods shed Art Centre.

A very pleased Will said that the play area will be opened on August 21 by the mayor of Tetbury Ann Pearce.

THE Tetbury Lions Men in Sheds project in Herd Lane is open to the public every Wednesday morning from 10am to noon, for the sale of fresh vegetables harvested early Wednesday morning.

They can only take cash and ask for generous donations so that the Lions can continue to support individuals and organisations in the town. Please bring your own bags.

TETBURY Town Council would like to warn and notify residents and visitors who attend the St Saviours burial ground that the entrance from Sherwood Road has had a gate and fence built by the Dolphins Hall Management Committee, making it impossible to turn around and safely exit from the slip road.

The town council had no prior advance notice of this action and are currently trying to engage with the Dolphins Hall Management Committee over this matter.

THE Tetbury Visitor Information centre has been awarded a ‘Covid-19 Industry Standard’ certificate in recognition of the fact that we have followed government and industry guidelines regarding cleanliness and social distancing.

You’ll find a hand sanitiser dispenser on the door frame, floor stickers and information posters regarding queuing and entering the premises, the door being left open (weather permitting) to prevent touching of the handle and screening in place.

Due to the small size of the centre, we are asking that only one household enter at a time.
