Listers contribution to Dursley celebrated
Dursley Welcomes Walkers members were on hand to assist at the unveiling of the new plaque in Dursley that celebrates the contribution to Dursley that Listers made.
The iconic engineering company, founded by Robert Ashton Lister (later Sir Robert) in 1867, was a major employer in the town for many years. In order to recognise the importance of Lister’s to Dursley town a plaque was unveiled at the Priory on the 7th April by the Mayor of Dursley/secretary of Dursley Welcomes Walkers, Councillor Neil Grecian.
The event was attended by many former employees of the company, many local residents and members of the Lister family.
