Our last bank branch closed earlier this year and this has made life quite difficult for businesses and those who rely on access to a bank. Our wonderful Post Office provides a great service, but this cannot always replace the services of a bank.
We are asking those that might use a mobile service in town to sign the petition here.
This year there has been a community-generated display of poppies on the town's Clock Tower. An idea from former Mayor Jenny Evans sparked Margaret Marshall and others to enthuse people across Nailsworth to knit red poppies. Many joined in to help, particularly Jane Luff and including Bob Warner and others. The poppies were fixed to netting and the Fire Brigade decorated the tower.
Nailsworth lost 78 of its young men in the Great War and this extraordinary effort from the community has created a fitting commemoration. See details of the 78 here.
Thank you to everyone who has been involved.
On Saturday 18th November Nailsworth Town Councillors will be available at The Mortimer Room to answer questions about the Council and its activities.

Come along between 10:00 and 12:00 on the 18th November, at The Mortimer Room, next to the Library.
Below you will se a report from the 2017 Town Meeting. We are hoping to keep the format. but look at ways of getting more organisations to show what they do, and also have more members of the public attend. Watch this space.
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.
This was a new, trial, format and participants reported they thoroughly enjoyed it. Look forward to next year!
The 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.

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:
