Club member John Barnard's lawn mower shed - Lawnside House - at his home in Cheshire has been shortlisted in the Workshop/Studios category in the annual Shed of the Year competition. The organisers of the competition - www.readersheds.co.uk - have now opened the public vote to find the winner but you'll need to be fast because voting closes at midday on Wednesday 8 June. The winner in each category and the overall champion will be announced on the Channel 4 TV programme "Amazing Spaces Shed of the Year" later this summer.

John was one of the Old Lawnmower Club's founding members and he has also served on the committee since its inception. He has a large collection of mowers, many of which are highly unusual and have been lovingly restored by John using his expertise and experience as an engineer. He's already been filmed by the programme-makers and posed for photographs ready for the Channel 4 series which will be broadcast later this year. Don't forget, you need to vote by Wednesday 8 June.
