Cherry Tree, Market Street Garden

NTC asked the tree surveyors (different from the contractor who carries out the work) to monitor the cherry tree in Market Street when in June 2020 it was noticed that limbs were dying back. Last year (2021) the dieback was worse and this year it was considerably worse; the tree had major pieces of deadwood and specifically the central leader.
This tree has been monitored throughout the Summer and the lateral limbs growing toward the garden have also died. The tree was clearly in decline and removal of just the deadwood would leave the tree heavily unbalanced towards the roadside. A reduction to balance growth would likely kill the tree so in this instance the most prudent solution was removal to a height of 1.5m to allow retention of climbing plants.

NTC uses contractors from SDC’s tree framework agreement to carry out tree surveys and tree surgery in the parish. Interested local contractors have previously been informed how to tender for these contracts.

Heritage Open Day - September 2022

Following careful consideration and discussions with the venues, it was decided that Nailsworth Town Council’s second Heritage Open day should go ahead as planned on Saturday 10th September.

Local residents along with visitors from far and wide enjoyed exploring the twelve historic buildings which opened their doors to the public, several of which had never been fully accessible before. The day provided a chance for people to look at fascinating hidden places and treasures. Visitors were also able to learn more about the buildings and their history. The weather was perfect for exploring the local area and the guided walks which took place throughout the day were very popular.   

Grade II listed property Holcome House welcomed the public for the first time and hosted an event with live music, a BBQ, entertainment and provided tours of the property. The event was very popular, attracting almost 175 visitors and raising an impressive £1400 for the Multiple System Atrophy Trust. Owner Ruth Howell would like to thank all of the people who helped, donated and attended the event and said “We were delighted with the turnout on Saturday, the atmosphere was wonderful, and it was particularly gratifying to see the genuine interest in our efforts to make our Grade II listed property, as Net Zero as possible. We even had queues forming for my husbands ‘ Net Zero’ Tours! Well done to Nailsworth Town Council for putting this lovely event together.”

As part of the Heritage Open day event, the Town Council had intended to display the town’s new flags, but it was decided that it would be better to postpone this for the time being. We hope to display them all at an event soon.

The Town Council look forward to creating the programme for next year’s Heritage Open Day which will take place on Saturday 9th September 2023.

Council Budget

Council Tax demands are dropping on doorsteps and we thought you might like to know why there is a reduction in NTC's Precept.

Last year the budget went up because of works reading to Ash Die Back. At the time we said that once the work had been completed, we would reduce that element of the budget. The work can be completed with the funds that were raised last year, and that is why there is a reduction. 

Slow down for a smile!

Jan 21 2021 P1210015 1.jpgThe Town Council has had two Speed Indicator Device Signs installed. One of these is near Egypt Mill, on the A46 and one on Nympsfield Road towards the Youth Club. NTC has been working with the Police and Crime Commissioner and Gloucestershire County Council to obtain and fit the SIDS.

The signs give you a happy smile if you are driving with the speed limit, and frown if you are not. The signs also store data, so that speed statistics can be analysed over time.
