TARshed!

After seeing that a plywood TARDIS (built for a Doctor Who-themed float at Devizes and Pewsey carnivals last year) was up for sale by Wiltshire Fencing and Landscaping to raise money for the county’s Air Ambulance appeal, Wiltshire couple – and Doctor Who fans – Philippa Morgan and Declan McSweeney decided to bid on the construction.

It now resides on the Quakers Walk allotments where it keeps tools safe from the elements.

Ms Morgan, a project manager at Wiltshire County Council, told the Wiltshire Gazette: “We needed a shed for our allotment and we thought the Tardis would be something a bit different. We were thrilled to bits to get it.

“It’s become a talking point, people ask us how the Tardis is and it’s fun for children to see it.”

Their 202 bid was the second highest for the 10ft tall TARDIS and won when the
highest bidder (250) pulled out.

Not a bad price for a novelty shed…
