Lord Lieutenant of Bucks pays a visit

The Lord Lieutenant of Buckinghamshire, Countess Howe, paid a visit to Wendover Shed on 26 February, at the invitation of Shed chairman Bob Duggan.

She met a group of Shedders who showed off their current projects and also the work they’ve done to improve the original metal office and brick stables to make them warm and weatherproof, to extend the working areas with the covered wooden “outdoor space,” and installing off-grid solar power and batteries to run all the machinery and lights.

Countess Howe has been Lord Lieutenant of the County since 2020, having been a Deputy Lieutenant previously since 1994. Although she makes 300 to 400 visits throughout the county of Buckinghamshire every year, she said this was her first visit to any of the nine “Men’s Sheds” in the area.

She was impressed by the power system and battery storage, which was duly demonstrated by heating the water for teas and coffees all round!
