This is a case of DIY SOS - Skids needs a new home and legion of local tradespeople are transforming a caretaker’s cottage into a children’s club in seven days.

The project is being managed by builder Gary Hill who has recruited plumbers, electricians, carpet fitters, computer experts and painters and decorators.

The team will turn the bungalow in the grounds of Seamer and Irton school into a centre for play and relaxation for the members of the after-school and holiday club.

“The place we are is too small and this was the only place they could move us,” said director of Skids Julie Sheppard. “This time the olace will be custom-built for us,” she said.

Workers gave up their time to make sure the project will be completed by tomorrow. The transformation includes a new kitchen, new decor, new lightning and knocking down a wall to replace it with doors leading to an outdoor play area.
