Thank You Pete and Tash

Posted by Rosie

Sorry about the lack of posts recently - we have been busy getting on with all sorts of work much assisted by our first HelpX volunteers, Pete and Tash.

From New Zealand they have been travelling round Europe and needed a place to fill a gap between other HelpX stays - and they chose us! They have worked so hard, helping in the gite, the garden, the house and with the animals. The boys loved them and after a lot of hotels and hostels they said they really enjoyed living en famille once again. Thanks to all their efforts, the Fosse Septiques are almost in, the polytunnel is cleared and dug, the kindling is chopped, the dogs have had some extra walks, the washing up got done before bedtime, Fabulous Hallowe'en costumes were made, the sheep have been moved .........

It wasn't all work though: they came to the Food Fair, we had a day at Cité de la Mer up at Cherbourg and last night we had a farewell pizza at our favourite Pizza Restaurant, Les Trois Ecus, in Condé-sur-Noireau.

Thank you very much Pete and Tash.
