You will work on the renovation of a stone wall along a rioton: you will have to clean the joints and apply a new coating!
In parallel, small masonry work is to be expected, some unstable stones are threatening to fall and have to be replace inside the wall in order to insure the inhabitants’ safety along the rioton.
You will be accommodated in tents on a sport field in the center of the village, boys and girls separately. Don’t forget to bring a warm sleeping bag. The kitchen, toilets, showers and the common living space of the group will be close to the workcamp. You will be able to find shelter there in case of bad weather. The volunteers will cook alternately using products purchased nearby. We will promote local and seasonal products as well as short supply chains. Tastings of local specialties can also be made possible with local producers.
Located only one hour away from Lyon and Saint Etienne, 25 minutes from Roanne, the municipality of Regny (1200 inhabitants), served by train, is the perfect place for getting to know our region. The Mont of Forez and its verdant nature make it an ideal spot for outdoor activities (hiking, cycling, and swimming at “Lac des Sapins”, picnic …). The Auvergne and its volcanoes are also very close. It is a village full of history and the inhabitants will gladly share it with you!
Located in the north of the Loire department, in the green countryside of Forez, the municipality of Regny has a very typical local heritage. Among the maze of streets, you will also find “riotons”, small pedestrian streets. As part of Agenda 21, the municipality is developing projects to renovate them.
With the support of the town’s inhabitants, you will work collectively on this site while enjoying the charming natural surroundings suitable for walks.
Remember to take suitable gloves, working clothes and shoes that you don’t mind getting dirty. As nights may be chilly, bring a warm sleeping bag and warm clothes. Do not forget to take sun protection as well (hat, sunglasses, cream …) and your swimsuit. You will work under the supervision of our technical leader who will guarantee the security on the site in collaboration with the municipality. Common leisure activities will be programmed together with the camp leaders and according to your suggestions. You will collectively plan the visits and activities. If you want to share a little of your culture (cooking recipes, traditional stories, unu-sual objects …), do not hesitate to take a little bit 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 will then be reimbursed once back home.
