An allegation that the Badsey Women’s Institute – when asked to help in raising money for bus shelters in the village – had “been shelving the scheme and making all sorts of excuses since it was first put forward” was made by Mr F E Jones at a meeting of the parish council last Tuesday.  Mrs K Taylor said the WI committee had originally agreed to carry out a house-to-house collection for five bus shelters but it passed a resolution that it could not carry out the collections as it appeared no one would be responsible for the maintenance of the shelters, if they were erected.
