Wer organisiert das Projekt?

The Othona Community in Bradwell-on-Sea was founded in 1946. It is a residential centre for people of different ages, nationalities and backgrounds to seek a common understanding in the cause of peace. Othona has welcomed VAP volunteers since the early 1970's. Othona is a multi-faith non-dogmatic Christian Community founded next to one of the oldest churches in the UK (654AD). It fully involves non-Christians. It is an experimental community where work, play, drama, art and study are combined. Volunteers will be fully integrated in the life of the community.

Arbeit

The camp covers three weeks with the focus being to restore the roof of Downend Cottage, with volunteers having the opportunity to learn traditional skills in carpentry, masonry and roofing as part of the process. Being a large site, there will be a variety of other work throughout the camp to help keep the site looking beautiful, for example dry stone walling, gardening, path clearing, cooking, woodworking, and haymaking.

Unterkunft und Verpflegung

Volunteers will camp in tents and cooking will be done on wood fires. Facilities are very basic – there are no showers, piped water or modern facilities on site. We use composting toilets. Visits will be organized to the local swimming pool where there are showers. Volunteers camp in tents and cooking will be done over open fires in the main farmhouse. In hotter years it is feasible to improvise showers on site, though hot water is limited by what is possible to heat over a fire.

Lage und Freizeit

The camp is close to the historic cities of Cardiff, Bristol, and Bath which are near enough for volunteers to visit during rest days. In the last weekend we will be visiting a historical event in South Wales, and camp volunteers will have the opportunity to take part in the event.

Grayhill Historical Farm was bought by the Historical Land Group Trust. A full landscape restoration to its probable condition around 1580-1660 was started in 1987 and to date two and a half sets of farm buildings have been restored in stone with thatch or Stone tile roofs. The land use comprises hay meadows, pasture, coppice woodland, orchards, gardens and arable. Over 220 fruit trees of varieties pre dating 1660 are now well established. The site has been used for a number of purposes throughout the years, including school educational visits, children’s camps, filming, retreats, international camps, feasting, and traditional crafts.
