Martyn Smith

Martyn Smith, Trustee

Martyn moved to Painswick in 2001, and has worked largely in Finance throughout his career, sixteen years of which were with Dyson. He volunteered to become a Trustee when the Centre was looking for someone with finance experience. Martyn sits on the Resources & Maintenance and Fundraising subgroups, and is using his experience to help the Centre develop financial sustainability in the long term.

Dawn Tyson

Dawn Tyson, Trustee

When she moved to Painswick in 2012 from a tiny rural community in Scotland, Dawn became just as involved in The Painswick Centre as she had been at her old village hall. She quickly went from willing friend and volunteer to minutes secretary and then Trustee, via a brief period as Centre Manager. Dawn is always willing to get her hands dirty and get on with any job that needs doing so is an invaluable asset to the Centre!
