    HELP NEEDED TO ESTABLISH A NEW PROJECT FOR OUR VILLAGE

    We are a British couple living in France in our Charantaise bed and breakfast. Our latest project is to finish renovating our barn so it can be used for community activities. We also wish to create a vegetable garden, so we would be looking for enthusiastic gardeners! Any assistance with general improvements would also be useful. Basically we need help with generally tidying up outside and making things look creative and pretty. So anyone with an artistic flair would be most welcome.
    In addition if you can play a musical instrument feel free to bring it along you may like to join in with some of our friendly french musicians.
    this could be an opportunity for anyone wanting to improve their English language skills as Jacqui is a qualified English Teacher.
    We live in a beautiful region near Cognac, on the edge of a small town where you can find a bar, restaurant, cinema and the usual shops. Our property is host to some wonderful wildlife, barn owls, golden orioles, hoopoes, coypu, red squirrels, and we want to work to ensure these species always have a home here.We have a good sized meadow by the river that we need ideas for, so any inspiration gratefully received! Plenty of walking and cycling routes around about. We have three friendly dogs, four goats and chickens.

    The local village of Matha offers amenities such as french cinema,bar,restaurants, park, shops and supermarkets. There are larger towns only a thirty minute drive away. St, Jean d'angely, Cognac, Saintes and Angouleme have churches, museums, shops and restaurants with their own tourist attractions. So there is plenty to see and do.
