As reported in the Weybridge News and Mail and The Yorkshire Post, 77-year-old Len Lapwood from Addlestone has 'won' the worst shed of the year award run by seed specialists Marshalls. Strangely, Marshalls' MD Martin Harvey had this to say:
“Len’s wasn’t really the worst shed, but it had the most character. We were looking for an authentic British shed and Len’s fitted the bill.”
Mr Lapwood inherited the 10ft by 6ft shed from a gardener in Weybridge in the 1970s. His prize is a new shed worth £500 which he is going to give to his daughter.
