Farewell to our Aston Star - Martin Scyner

Retirement of our Aston Star Martin Scyner,

The library staff held a celebratory party for Martin Scyner who retired from the library on the 11th June.  Martin is a real character who started work as a member of the library shelving team after he was already of pensionable age.  You may have seen him on the 2nd floor shelving the Life and Health Science books but staff will remember his love of Suduko, plying the staff room with newspapers and telling a good story.

Martin was chosen as an Aston Star because of all his charitable work.  He also plays in the Fire Service Band and has played in front of royalty and Jon Bon Jovi.  He will still be seen playing his clarinet and bassoon as a member of the University Music Society.  

Martin was joined on his special day with his wife Val to whom he has been married for 50 years.  

We hope you will join us in wishing Martin a long and happy retirement.
