LYDNEY councillors gathered at Templeway yesterday (Tuesday, May 31) for the official opening of a spot dubbed ‘Jubilee Corner’ in honour of Her Majesty the Queen.

The town council has refurbished the corner of High Street and Templeway West to celebrate the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee this year, which has included the installation of a new bench, a commemorative inscribed stone and decorative planters.

The majority of works at the site have been carried out by the council’s own grounds team, including the refurbishment of the nearby bus shelter, the painting of a wall and phone box and the removal a tree stump.

A letter box was also repainted by Royal Mail, while BT gave the council permission to repaint the phone box.

Resurfacing works were completed by Gloucestershire County Council Highways, while the resident of the adjoining property gave permission for the team to work on his wall.

And to top it all off, the local W.I. fashioned a letter box ‘topper’ of a crown using recycled materials.

Town councillors including County Chairman Alan Preest and District Councillor James Bevan gathered for the unveiling along with Lydney Mayor Councillor Tasha Saunders, who thanked everyone involved in the project for their hard work.

Lydney’s town crier then proclaimed the corner open before Cllr Saunders cut the red, white and blue ribbon.
