The aim of the blog is to promote the world of sheds and will also concentrate on the sheddies who share their sheds for Shed of the year.
A bit of history
- Readersheds started in 2000 – as I wanted to looks at photos of sheds online to get an idea for mine – but there was nothing out there.
- I never did get a great shed at that time (but that’s another story) – the site went from strength to strength with every shed added – and the sheddies community blossomed still is the reason I do this..
- In 2007 I petitioned 10 downing street to create a National Shed Day/Week but they rejected the idea
“It was intended to be humorous, or have no point about government policy”
- If the government would not support the sheddies I would – Shed of the year competition and Shed week was started and the first ever winner is always one of my favourites.
- In 2014 Channel 4 commissioned episodes of Shed of the year as part of their Amazing Spaces series and that lasted until 2017, presented by Shed fancier George Clarke.
- The future of Shed of the year is we are still championing sheddies and their amazing sheds and thanks to our sponsors Cuprinol we are going strong.
- If you can donate – Every little helps towards running our shed servers.
