Annual Town Meeting

The Annual Town Meeting was held on Monday 24th April in the Town Hall. It showcased activities within the town, with organisations displaying what they do.

The Mayor and Pete Reed presented the Town Awards and the Town Council reported on what it has been working on over the last year. Parishioners were able able to set questions to the council.

Filming for a Charity at KGV

NTC stepped in to help out a local resident on Friday 10th Feb. Robyn had arranged to film a promotional video for Duchenne UK in the play area at Horsley, but the play area is being renovated. 

We were happy to be able to allow them to film from 09:00 until 12:00. Whilst this meant that the play area was not open for other users, it did help ensure that the film could be made.


The promotional video is ready to be signed off by Duchenne UK, but in he meantime, here is a different edit of the video.

We are delighted to have been able to help out, with the exception of the weather! The fundraising page is here.

Grants for the Town

Council has a new Grants Policy, which has been designed with the intention of making it easier for residents to apply for grants. We don’t have a minimum amount and we are hoping that the Grant Budget is used to really improve the town by helping residents with projects, however small. We expect the recipients of NTC grants to complete a Monitoring Form afterwards, so we can see the benefit that the grant money has brought to the town.

Grants will be considered for projects that improve or enhance the town, for example:

  • quality of life
  • recreation, sports and well being
  • arts
  • local environment
  • neighbourhood communities
  • Nailsworth’s history

Links to the relevant documents are below: the policy document should answer most questions about our Grants, however feel free to speak to a councillor or call the Clerk’s office for more information.

20mph Town-wide Limit

20mph.pngThe A46 Group has continued work on this project and Gloucestershire Highways are preparing the necessary TRO (Traffic Regulation Order) for this and other items for Nailsworth's roads. 

When the TRO is ready information about it will be posted here. This interesting project will help to make Nailsworth a better town for all, not just for drivers. The project was started after members of the public expressed concerns about the effect of traffic on our community. The consultation carried out in Spring was overwhelmingly in favour of the scheme. 

Recently the Town Council applied for a grant from the Police and Crime Commissioner's Fund to buy two more Smiley SID signs and it is intended that these go on Spring Hill and the A46 from Stroud. There is already one proposed for the A46 from Bath. Smiley SIDs indicate a car's speed and a smile or frown - giving instant feedback to a driver as to how considerate their driving is.
