He worked at the Dursley Post Office for many years before being promoted to district manager. I would love to have it as all I have is wonderful memories of him. My e-mail is Jupat@columbus.r...

Re: Lister's Workman's Club

I also have had contact with the Richings family members who lived lower down towards Uley Rd. We have not visited Dursley for 13 years but have lots of friends...

Hi, we wondered what your father's name was and where did you guys live in Dursley? I lived in First Ave most of my young life, my husband lived at Cam Green but worked at Lister's from 1952-1967.

It was built with brick sides and very thick cement roof, very low building with cement seats along each wall. I can't remember the length of the st...
