Help with renovation, gardening, organisation, art project


The Exchange

Work is varied and we will try to adjust to your strengths but currently, we often need help with renovation of a room with stone walls, cleaning as this work often creates a lot of dust throughout the house, garden work, organization of things - cupboards, rooms, decorating, cleaning bathrooms including sometimes for a bed & breakfast room. Possibly help with IT issues. Possibly an art project - if you have talents in this direction. (mosaic)

Program Details

We have a discussion on the first day about how we can work together. We try work around what our guest volunteers prefer as far as possible, but we need you to be flexible for us too.
We will treat you like family if we are comfortable around you. We encourage you to come to the dining room and chat while I cook dinner. Engage with Pancho our lovely little dog, play one of Danny's guitars or ukuleles if you can - or share some of your musical tastes, join us for an ale over the road in the Ship Inn. Tell us about your family your life your interests your politics. We want to know about you....


Activities & Shift

Typically it would involve working for 5 days for 5 hours in the morning from after breakfast until the afternoon. We may need volunteers to work at the weekend (usually just Saturday) but then there would be an additional day off.


Rules

No smoking. If you smoke anywhere in the house you will be asked to leave.
Everything else will be explained when you arrive . We are not a house full of rules but there are some things that will help us 'rub along' together better.
