Frankrijk | Restauratie
Samen met 11 andere vrijwilligers ga je voor 21 dagen naar een restauratieproject.
Het project duurt van 5 t/m 26 juli.
We invite you to continue the work started last year on a beautiful edifice! The church of Cazaux is listed as a historical monument of France. You will handle the renovation of a buttress and a facade of the church. First, you will have to repair the joints using hydrated lime. You will also cut stones and replace the missing and the damaged ones. All of these things will be done with the support of the local population.
You will be accommodated under tents in the municipal campsite with a collective room at your disposal and access to toilets and showers. You will share the cleaning chores and prepare meals together. The budget will be allocated to the group leader and you will participate in the preparation of dishes using good products from the market and local producers.
Close to the city of Agen, Laplume is located south-east of the Lot-et-Garonne department. You will have ludic and sports activities. You may also discover and enjoy built and natural heritage around where locals awaits you to share their culture and knowledge. Every Thursday night a local market with many concerts takes place in the village.
Laplume’s county holds both beautiful natural landscapes and precious built heritage. Proud of this heritage, the city tries its best to maintain its natural and rural territory, while developing touristic activities. This summer, the workcamp objective will be to restore one of Laplume’s churches. A local association gathering concerned inhabitants has been created to save the historical patrimony of the area. They will work side by side with the international volunteers.
Bring a warm sleeping bag and mat, working clothes shoes, warm and rain clothes and a flashlight. Foreigners belonging to the European Union must bring with them a personal EHIC (European Health Insurance Card), and everybody must, in any case, bring their insurance certificate. If health issues happen on the project, volunteers will have to pay for it, and then be reimbursed once back in their home country.
Meeting point: Train station of Agen (47). Closest Airport: Toulouse or Bordeaux.
