Leading figures from the voluntary sector and government attended a reception at the House of Commons last night to mark the retirement of Kevin Curley, former chief executive of local infrastructure organisation Navca.

Curley retired from the Sheffield-based organisation in January after a decade in charge.

Nick Hurd, the Minister for Civil Society, described Curley as a "source of direct, trustworthy advice".

Hurd praised Curley for strengthening Navca at a time when infrastructure organisations were operating in "the most horrible funding environment".

Joe Irvin, who succeeded Curley as chief executive, Mike Martin, Navca chair, and Alun Michael, Labour MP for Cardiff South and Penarth and chair of the All Party Parliamentary Group on Civil Society and Volunteering, also paid tribute to Curley, whose wife, Penny, and two daughters also attended.
