Exeter Men in Sheds was congratulated by Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, when she visited Exeter Cathedral to celebrate Exeter being named by Unesco as a City of Literature.

Men in Sheds volunteers Ray Smart and Martin Liddon 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 volunteers, Alan Mills and Ray Smart and painted by John Bridges. Martyn presented the Duchess with a candle stick holder fashioned by volunteer, Paul Hayward.
