Frankrijk | Restauratie
Samen met 12 andere vrijwilligers ga je voor 21 dagen naar een restauratieproject.
Het project duurt van 6 t/m 27 juli.
With the support of a technical coordinator from Concordia, you will work on the roof of the washhouse to treat the problems of rainwater infiltrations. You will bring new tiles and set up a rain screen in order to replace the old ones. The wooden parts will be cleaned and covered with linseed oil. Some masonry repairs will be necessary on certain areas of the wash house. An overall cleaning of the structure could be done using metal brushes to remove mosses and vegetation, so the washhouse would look as good as new.
You will be lodged in tents near the communal stadium. Bring a warm sleeping bag. The kitchen, toilets, showers and group living space are indoor within the municipal infrastructure, which will also provide shelter in case of bad weather. You will participate in the preparation of meals using products that will be purchased on site. We will promote local products as well as short circuits. Tastings of local specialties may also be organized with local producers.
Communay is located in the Rhône department. Lyon is 20 km north, Vienna is 12 km south. Public transport such as bus and SNCF shuttles will allow you to easily reach the city and visit the surroundings. You will be able to discover Lyon, the Capital of Gaul region (traboules, Basilica of Fourvière, Old Lyon …), the ancient theater of Vienne and its Jazz festival or to walk along the Rhône on the ViaRhôna … There is a lot of different possibilities and the choice will be yours!
Discover Communay few kilometers away from Lyon, which welcomes you for its first international volunteer project. The ideal opportunity to visit the region in a rural and beautiful environment, between green plains and hills. Communay is a village on the east of Lyon with nearly 4000 inhabitants. The town benefits from the attractiveness of the Lyon agglomeration while preserving its traditional character. It has a rich and well preserved heritage. In its center, there is a washhouse. In the 19th century Communay had 5 public washhouses. In the first half of the twentieth some have disappeared. Currently, only one remains as a witness of past times. Today, the municipality wishes to renovate it with the support of Concordia and a team of motivated volunteers.
Remember to bring gloves as well as clothes and shoes that you don’t mind getting dirty. Also remember to bring a warm duvet and appropriate clothing in case of rain (polar, raincoat …). Do not forget sun protection (hat, glasses, cream …) and your swimsuit. Informal times will be programmed collectively in connection with our camp leaders and according to your desires! If you want to share a bit of your culture (recipes, traditional stories, unusual objects …), do not hesitate to take a small piece of your country in your backpack! 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: Communay Stade station with the SNCF shuttle from Lyon Perrache train station. Closest airport: Lyon or Paris
