We (Lesley & Jason) organise a local event in September each year and for Sept 2019 we will need 7 workawayers to help with the running of the event. Please SEE MORE DETAILS BELOW.
Swanage is in an area of Outstanding Natural Beauty Purbeck, Dorset. We are only 400m from the beach and town center and withing easy reach of the fabulous walks that surround Swanage. There are numerous pubs and cafes within a few minutes walk which are perfect for an evening drink or perhaps a meal.

The natural beauty of the area has been recognized and is a World Heritage site, known as the Jurassic coast. Most things are within walking distance including the blue flag beach, Durlston Country park, walks etc. Corfe Castle and Studland are a short bus ride away, as are Poole and Bournemouth. We have a dog and are happy for you to take him with you on walks if you'd like. Our B&B is comfortable, homely and very relaxed. A great place from which to explore the local area.
SEPTEMBER 2019 - We are seeking help from the 10th-20th Sept 2019 to help with a local sporting event
We have an opportunity for 7 workawayers to assist with the setting up and organisation of a local outdoor event, involving Running, Nordic Walking, and Mountain biking. For half the time you will have very little to do but from the 12th - 17th you will have loads to do and may work some long hours. If you can be flexible like this then let us know.
There will be long hours during the event which will require setting up, organising and taking down between 12th - 17th, I am making sure that workawayers who are helping have time off before and after the event. In total we are looking for people from the 10th-20th Sept 2019 with a possibility for a couple of people to stay longer.
During the event week, you will be helping with the event and not be cleaning or doing maintenance work. You may have to take your turn in helping with cooking for the team and in keeping the room you are in and bathroom clean.
You will be doing everything from helping to put up marquees, helping with setting up event start and finish areas, making teas and drinks for the event team, doing admin for events, handing out medals and goody bags and a whole load of other things :) as I have said it is long hours but fun and enjoyable.
If you join us for this event in 2019 you will be accommodated in our BnB but you will be sharing the rooms on a same sex basis.
Your accommodation is in a large Victorian house (BnB) with comfortable, warm bedroom with own television and bathroom. Free WiFi is available for your use. Please note that smoking is not allowed in the house at any time.

We have a dog and are happy for you to take him with you on walks if you'd like. Our B&B is comfortable, homely and very relaxed. A great place from which to explore the local area.
