Can you help? We need handy workers, upholsterers, painters for this project…
DORIS: This retro caravan was a labour of love for a chef. She spent a year renovating the caravan, named “Doris” and she planned to attend festivals with a supply of cupcakes. Doris was standing on the driveway outside the chefs house, when a drunk driver smashed into the tow bar in the early hours of one morning so now she is no longer road worthy.The driver refused to pay the charge to have Doris removed from the driveway to the tip, so Jo got in contact with a local Stroud haulier, Ian Walworth, who transported her to equineEARTH and now she has a new home as an art space for Drawing and Talking therapy.
Arrival: Ian Walworth of Stroud Transport Services collected Doris from Swindon and transported her here in October. She is in need of repairs to the windows, the internal roof and decoration.
Goal: Doris will be used for our Creative Art workshops, as a counselling space for Drawing & Talking Therapy for children and also a place for guest practitioners during retreats.
Inside Project: As she has been sitting in the field all winter,Doris needs some TLC, repairing the roof inside,the skylight, fixtures and fittings. Jo would also like to transfer the hobbit stove from the yurt to Doris, as it’s ineffective in the yurt, but will be ideal for keeping Doris warm.
Outside Project: Doris needs some repair work on a window and she needs a change of colour.
