    What else ...

    Nearest town if 1/2 hour walk. we often go if you need a lift. We are parents of a child with cerebral palsy so sometimes only one of us is available , we would like people to be fairly happy being independent. Please note:

    We would ask that all volunteers have their own travel or health insurance cover - we, of course take great care to avoid any dangers and aim to provide a safe and healthy environment - but we do not have or offer insurance to the volunteers that come.
