Frankrijk | Restauratie
Samen met 14 andere vrijwilligers ga je voor 21 dagen naar een restauratieproject.
Het project duurt van 11 juli t/m 1 augustus.
You will restore a perimeter wall using traditional masonry techniques. You will have to rebuild a part of the wall, repair the damaged areas, fill in the cracks and make new seals.
You will sleep in two-person tents (please bring your sleeping mat) near the sports field and the group activities and meals will take place in a room made available to the group. The group will be sharing the cleaning chores and preparing meals together. The budget will be allocated to the group leader, shopping will be done with him/her and you will participate in the preparation of dishes with products from the market and local producers (if possible).
Plevin (around 800 inhabitants) is located in the center of Brittany in the county of “Cotes d’Armor”. It is a charming small town, with a 17th century church. There are several hiking trails around the town. You will be able to go on a trip to the sea or to do leisure activities in the town of Carhaix (around 7 500 inhabitants), at only 10 km from Plevin. You will also be able to enjoy the atmosphere of the music festival “Les Vieilles Charrues” which takes place there every summer in July. It’s the biggest music festival in France (around 280 000 visitors last year)!
Come to animate a small town in the heart of Brittany! The town council of Plevin welcomes you for its first international workcamp and need you to restore its built heritage, in the center of the village! An opportunity to experience the local culture and to make unforgettable inter-generational meetings.
You will have to bring warm clothes (trousers, sweater; socks, closed shoes, rain clothes) and light ones (skirt or shorts, t-shirt, open shoes) because weather can change very suddenly in Brittany. You can literally experience all four seasons in one day! Please also take with you working clothes, gloves and shoes in addition to your best swimsuit. Bring a warm sleeping bag and an insulated camping mat as nights are sometimes fresh and wet. 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: Carhaix train station. Closest airport: Rennes or Paris.
