Five French students are due to arrive in Basildon this Friday afternoon for a 12 night stay while they attend a language course. Accommodation had been booked, but the intended hosts have backed out, so replacement host families are urgently needed in Basildon, Wickford, Pitsea or Laindon. The students go to school all day, but benefit from being in a friendly home environment where they get extra language practice and a real feel for life in Britain. If you would like to offer a place, please call Karen on 07949624484. She will come to see you, explain about payment and what is asked of you and remain available for support during your paying guest’s stay.
