In the summer of 2019 I entered the Cuprinol Shed of the Year competition and luckily managed to make it into the final shortlist of 21 sheds. My shed has been entered into the workshop/studio category and I have to wait until after 29 August 2019 to know if my entry has been voted category winner.
The final seven sheds that win each category will be judged by a panel of experts. All of the shed are amazing but I hope I win.
Getting to the final shortlist meant that my shed got lots of national and regional media attention.
This page is in progress as I have a lot of media coverage to include.
On 29 July 2019 ITV Westcountry interviewed me in my shed about getting onto the shortlist for the Shed of the Year. There is quite a lot of license here with calling my garden a city meadow but it was so fun to be on the telly and the camera woman and reporter Caron Bell was a pleasure to work with.
It was also fab to be featured on my favourite local online news Bristol 24/7
Here is a link to the news item on Bristol 24/7
The story went national
Here is the link to the item in The Guardian on 25 July 2019 that shows all of the final 21 sheds that reached the coveted shortlist. You need to scroll to find my shed – I think it’s at about number nine.
Metro did a great article, again listing all of the 21 shed that reached the shortlist
