Volunteers at work

« 1 of 2 »
Today we had five volunteers working in Eyrardalur, the future house of the Arctic Fox Centre. These were Etienne, Alexander, Alan, Lindsay and Jennifer, all students in Coastal management at the Westfjords University Centre in Isafjordur.
They worked in sorting out and cleaning the original panel boards from the house, which was built before 1900. By cleaning and preparing the panel boards, they make it possible for the carpenders to re-use them and that gives the old house it´s old charm again.

After a four hours work, which makes it 20 working hours altogether, the team went to Dagbjört, our board member, for a delicious fish soup and bread, followed by coffee and chocolate cake - what a treat.

It is valuable for us to get a help like this and we hope to see more volunteers around in future weeks.
