With over 430 new entries in to Shed of the Year 2015 competition there are 2520 sheds with a chance of winning the highly prestigious title of Shed of the Year! And why does Pear Tree Weddings a vintage and classic VW wedding Hire company care about such things? ….because we run our Wedding VW Head Office from our garden shed….we kid you not!
On a wet August Bank Holiday last year the Pear Tree family turned it’s back on the fleet of wedding campervans and beetle put on old gear, took up a paint brush & paint pot each & began painting…..then over the following few weeks we painstakingly laid flooring, arranged furniture & lovingly populated our shed with all things VW.
So – voting starts on Monday 18th May! The judges will choose 4 finalists for the categories of Normal, Eco, Garden Office, Cabin & Summerhouse, Workshops & studios, Unique, Pub and two new categories Historical and Budget. The public will vote for their favourite in each category, with the finalists of each going through to this years’s Amazing Spaces Shed of the Year Channel 4 TV show presented by (the very lovely) George Clarke.
It’s a tense time, we’ve already had our 5minutes of fame having been in numerous National Newspapers & local press when the competition was launched early this year….BUT it’s been soo much fun we don’t want it to end yet….so we have fingers & toes crossed that we can make it through to the finalists for the Office Shed category.
Goodbye from a nervous Sheddie…..you’ll hear from us very soon if we get through….if it goes very quiet you can assume we didn’t make it to the next round!!
