Bus shelters in Whitminster get much needed makeover
Stroud District Council neighbourhood wardens from the community safety department refurbished two bus shelters on the A38 near the Whitminster Inn on Tuesday (1368209)
PASSENGERS in Whitminster can now wait in comfort for the bus.
Whitminster Parish Council and Stroud District Council neighbourhood wardens teamed up to repair the two bus shelters on the A38 near the Whitminster Inn on Tuesday morning.
John Jones, chairman on the parish council, said: “SDC neighbourhood wardens approached the parish council to see if there was a small scheme in the village that they could help with.
“The bus shelters on the A38 are used by a lot of residents in the village and it was felt by the parish council that a refurbishment of the shelters would be a good project for the neighbourhood wardens,” he said.
“On Tuesday morning the team arrived and cleaned and painted the shelters and also mowed and the grass and cut back the surrounding overgrown hedges.
“The makeover has really improved the appearance of the bus shelters which sit right on the entrance of the village.”
Whitminster Parish Council provided all the tools, materials and refreshments for the wardens which cost £150.
“The only unfortunate part of the project is that now the council has to think about replacing the plastic windows in the shelters which will cost quite a bit of money,” said Cllr Jones.
