Many local groups are keen to see the area around St Mary’s Church transformed as part of bigger plans to improve the lower High Street. A campaign to raise £250,000 for restoration work, new seating and art projects starts today with the planting of 3,500 spring and autumn bulbs.

Local residents, volunteers and school children from Dunalley School are planting the bulbs today (Monday 21st Oct) and tomorrow (Tuesday 22nd Oct) from 1-4pm and anyone else is very welcome to join them!   

Leader of the council, Steve Jordan, said, “With Cheltenham’s new art gallery and museum, The Wilson, opening nearby… this will all help to improve and transform the lower high street and St Mary’s.”
