Essex Shed Network partners Maldon and District CVS and CVS Uttlesford were this week shortlisted for an award in the inaugural NAVCA awards, recognising the contribution of voluntary sector infrastructure across the country.

The nomination,which was received in the Collaboration and Partnership category, was in recognition of the strong partnership work that had taken place between MDCVS and CVSU to set up the Essex Shed Network and procure three year funding from the National Lottery for the development and expansion of Men in Shed projects across the county.

MDCVS Director Sarah Troop said “I’m immensely proud that Maldon and District CVS and CVS Uttlesford were shortlisted in this category. The fellow nominees are all so impressive so to be recognised alongside them is a great achievement for our small teams”

CVSU Chief Exec Clive Emmett said  “I was extremely pleased to have been shortlisted for these new NAVCA awards and count ourselves privilaged to reach the point we did in the process considering the strong field. I am also very pleased that it was in partnership with our colleagues at Maldon CVS, an organisation we find it very easy to work with collaboratively.”
