Duchess of Cornwall congratulates Men in Sheds

Exeter Men in Sheds was congratulated by Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, when she visited Exeter Cathedral on Monday to celebrate Exeter being named by Unesco as a City of Literature. Shedders Martyn Liddon and Ray Smart showed the Duchess the splendid bus library constructed by Age UK Exeter’s Men in Sheds project and commissioned by Stagecoach for the new bus station which opens on 25th July. It will be part of the Little Free Library initiative providing a book exchange service for travellers visiting the bus station. The bus was built by Shedders Alan Mills and Ray Smart and painted by John Bridges and the project was co-ordinated by Martyn Liddon, one of the lead volunteers at the Shed. Martyn presented the Duchess with a candle stick holder fashioned by fellow Shedder Paul Hayward

Age UK Exeter appoints new CEO

Our Board of Trustees are delighted to announce the appointment of Nicky Flynn as our new Chief Executive. Nicky will succeed Martyn Rogers, our current CEO, who will be retiring at the end of September after nearly 30 years at the helm. Nicky is currently the chief executive of a charity for homeless people in London. She will take up post on 4th October following a handover with Martyn during September. Nicky has over 30 years’ experience in the voluntary and public sectors as both a provider and a commissioner and was the Services Manager and deputy CEO for Age Concern Dacorum in Hertfordshire from 2000 to 2009. We look forward to Nicky leading us into the next chapter of our life as we rebuild our services following the impact of the pandemic.
