Additionally, as well as sentimental/interesting items belonging to individuals….”we’d really love to feature and repair a few items in the show that have a community value, something treasured or essential to communities that has fallen into disrepair, perhaps has an interesting story and purpose to the village that can be restored. For example memorial plaques, eroded statues, snapped weather vanes, broken sun dials, cracked gargoyles, fading carvings, or maybe the paint is peeling on the local pub’s swing sign.
Please note that although a lot of things can be moved, items would need to not be permanently stuck in situ, for example some larger statues or water fountains are grand logistically feats to move. The item would be repaired at our repair shop (a barn outfitted for our experts) and given back to the community at no expense to the owner – additionally there would be broadcasted tv coverage from start to finish of the item, in the work shop and also when the item is revealed to the owner or community.
Please also note that we are receiving a lot of items and interest across the country, and sometimes they can be too big and take too long to fix, so please don’t be disheartened if we can’t repair it this time.” Ricochet tv
