Quotes

"The poles form the skeleton of the construction, so everything is built off them. After all the poles are in, we can actually start building some key features of the Trumpton village. In few months time, people will hopefully start to recognise it."
He added: "I want Portsmouth to be first off the starting blocks for this competition. We'll push for a 'Pompey pound' with a design celebrating our city."
"Portsmouth has played a pivotal role in the history of this country. With two huge new aircraft carriers soon to arrive, and all the new investment coming into the city, it's entering a new era. Its significance as a city should be recognised"
"It’s a proper outside room with heating, wiring etc, and I still rate it as a really good investment," says Allsopp of her own shed office. "A garden office transforms not just how you work, but also declutters your home. Rooms seem bigger and pleasanter without a desk, office chairs, cables and computers cluttering up living space."
