The independent voice of the global moving industry


25 years on

Apr 23, 2018
It was 25 years ago that Walter Shephard walked into Britannia Lanes in Exeter to ask for a job.

Last month he had his retirement party and is now enjoying some well-earned time off at home, with his wife, and his 40ft garden shed in which he makes bird boxes, for fun.  Why not!

Walter spent all his time with Lanes as a porter and driver.  Although he went out on the road until his retirement he admitted that more recently he’s been given the easier jobs.  He said he’d enjoyed his time in the business, especially the camaraderie with the crews and the nights out up country.  Now it’s time for a rest.

Congratulations Walter.

Rob Lane and Walter Shephard, Britannia Lanes.
