Great little article about a competition to increase awareness of crime prevention, using sheds
THERE was a “staggering” response to a crime-prevention competition, according to organisers.
Safer Ryedale was delighted with the number of entries â€“ 33 â€“ to its Sheducation campaign which aimed to remind the district to lock up sheds and other outside buildings.
Now in its third year, adults and children were asked to decorate and construct a standard template shed with the winners receiving top garden-themed prizes, including the top prize of a free ticket into Castle Howard.
Fellow judge Simon Thackray, of The Shed music and poetry venue, added: “It was great fun judging the little shed and a big eye opener! So much hard work and inventiveness has gone into the models and so much humour.
“I tend to gravitate towards the surrealist end of the spectrum and some of the flights of fancy we have seen are amazing.”
Be great to see some of the entrants, as making models sheds would be a great passtime for any sheddie.
