  • Description



    I live in Ramsgate Kent, 3mn walk to the beach.

    I enjoy running by the beach, music and travelling.

    Some work has already been done on the house but I would need someone who is good at DIY to help me with filling-in between plaster boards, tiling, painting and perhaps fitting a bathroom.

    You would have your own bedroom.

    I look forward to hearing from you! :)

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    This opportunity would be great for someone who would like to improve their English.
    It would be a way to get to know a different culture, there is a great music scene in Ramsgate, nice beach walks, a kitesurfing/canoeing school, also lots of bars / pubs / restaurants and shops.

    The cheapest train from Ramsgate to London takes 2 hours. There is a fast train to Kings Cross St Pancras in 1.15mn.

  • Help


    It would be great to host a volunteer.

    Mainly the help needed is filling-in between plaster boards - put plaster boards up in one room,, painting the walls.
    Perhaps helping with tiling would be great. I am also involved in doing the jobs in the house.

  • Accommodation


    The person staying with us would stay in a their own room.

    The room has been renovated, so is clean with white painted walls. The shower room is also brand new. The rest of the house needs some care.

    There will be free internet connection.

    Please do not hesitate to contact me should you be interested . Thanks

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    My area is called Thanet (Ramsgate/Broadstairs/Margate). Volunteers can go on beautiful walk along the coast with numerous beaches and particularly go and see the famous Botany Bay and Pegwell Nature Reserve. There are lots of bars with live music in Ramsgate and Broadstairs (the walk between the 2 towns when the tide is low is beautiful, along the white cliffs). They are welcome to borrow my bike to go on bike rides. They would be welcome to run with my running club that has 3 abilities levels so everyone is welcome. Ramsgate Tunnels is another thing to do. There is a boat trip to see seals (that are very numerous). In Margate, there is a fair ground, the Turner museum amongst other things. The train to London takes 2 hours on the cheapest slow train to Victoria Station.
