Martin Dowding – Shed Development Support

Martin first got involved with the Essex Shed Network in his former role as the Chair of the Great Yeldham Shed, a position from which he was able to appreciate the support/advice the project provides new Sheds. Martin joined the team as the Development Officer post in the Summer of 2022 and, after working with ESN for a year on a fixed term contract, is now supporting the team as a self employed consultant.
