National Shed Week Is Held From 1-6 July
1st July 2014
... Comments

Many of our nation's sheds have played a part in our history and we must make an effort to preserve them.

Shed enthusiasts have taken pride in building and caring for their sheds.  Those contending to be Shed of the Year range from hut sheds, eco-sheds, pub sheds, summerhouses and even a category called a 'tardis' shed!   There will even be a special category for International Shed of the Year!

A shed is more than just a DIY shed!   Check out the previous Shed Week winners and see - there are some real works of art on show.   Remember walking around garden centres when you were younger, gazing at all the sheds that you thought would be perfect for your very own house in the back garden?   To us a shed was a mystical place and Shed Week is perfect for showing the many dimensions to something we all take for granted.

Why not visit your local garden centre this week and have a browse?  Purchase a shed, do up an existing shed, transform what was your shed into a workshop, playroom or den.  Revel in the outdoors, it is summer after all!

Enjoy your garden shed, maybe you'll win next year!
