** short term Monday - Friday placements available from Feb onwards**

We have available short term project based placements available from Feb onwards mainly focused on gardening, outside painting and some inside painting.

YHA Blaxhall is a 40 bed hostel which makes a great base for exploring everything that the Suffolk coast has to offer. Comfortable and inviting, this former school is at the heart of the village on the edge of Blaxhall Heath surrounded by wildlife and beautiful countryside. Perfect for bird watching, cycling and walking. Also just down the road from the world famous Snape Maltings Concert Hall, and a 20 min drive to the fabulous RSPB reserve at Minsmere.

Your own transport is recommended as the nearest bus stop is 2 miles walk. You do need to be quite self sufficient as the hostel is fairly isolated but if you love nature, wildlife and peace and quiet you'll be happy!

Jamie & I (Amy) are the managers and we live on site with our young son. Our part time assistant Kathy lives in the village. Accommodation is provided free of charge in a hostel bedroom. Food isn't included but you are welcome to use the self catering kitchen to store and cook your own food. You would be expected to work approx 3 hours a day in the morning or afternoon. You would then have the rest of the day to explore the local area. At this time we can only offer short term Monday - Friday placements as the hostel is fully booked over the weekend.
