The DIY SOS team has taken an ever greater challenge amid the Coronavirus pandemic – using special wristbands and creating a’ human jigsaw ‘

DIY SOS is powerful enough at the best of times – not to mention in the midst of a global pandemic

But the hard-working team refused to be beaten and managed to assemble one of the most challenging buildings ever amid UK lockdown restrictions

With their last build in February, the team didn’t think they would be able to complete any new projects until next year, but they found a way

An army of volunteers usually lands on a house or building to tear it apart, which is impossible with current social distancing measures.

However, converting a small, ramshackle, submerged old bus shelter into an eco-friendly center in the form of a surfboard was the perfect project to tackle in these testing times

Proved to be a logistical nightmare, requiring expert planning, various wristbands and even bubbles for toilets

The challenge was to help Surfability UK, a world-leading, comprehensive surf school that helps children with severe disabilities participate in building a new home that can meet children’s needs

Children with additional needs were forced to change parking spaces and use wet equipment stored in a damp room that may be flooded

After hearing their plight, Presenter Nick Knowles told the producers that this was a charity that they needed.

DIY SOS builds have always required tremendous effort usually directed at the wire, but there was an added pressure this time with Covid-19 ‘overly challenging’ regulations

“Renovating a place is really difficult for us under [COVID-19] rules because to get enough people, we usually get 100 people in a building to dismantle it very quickly and we can’t do that but what Nick told the Radio Times” We can do it from scratch “

“So we basically went from a hole in the ground to a finished building in 9 days. The thing that usually takes a construction company six months to do it, it’s amazing in terms of its own respect, but doing it under the COVID regulations has been a huge challenge

“Kind of like a human jigsaw, we had to put together where people came and did their work and left, and immediately a new group came in and everyone was ready to go the moment they could step in and do the work and as usual, we ran it near the wire, we were We’re still doing things at 6 AM the day we revealed it ”

To comply with government guidelines, the team set up four huge dining tents with only one person per table

There were also several tea tents and a huge sign area where everyone had to take their temperature

Everyone working on the site was spat on in different teams that formed bubbles, so they were using the same toilets and going to lunch at the same time

DIY SOS legend Julian Berryman explains how the system works in a video on the DIY SOS Twitter page

“Look at all this This is what you like to set up a large DIY SOS build with the constraints of Covid,” Jules said.

“Not one tent, not two, nor three, but four food tents with one person per table so that we can move away the place to eat

“Multiple tea tents and a huge check-in area where everyone has to take their temperature and have a colorful wristband.

“So the color-coded bangles denote the time period for lunch and the color coding to so we’re in our own little purple bubble”

While everything was changing in the group, there were also differences for some DIY SOS team

Like many of us, Nick Knowles admitted he got even more heavy-duty during the closing period, so the show will also be filled with extra moments to help viewers have a better presence.

We start the show with me feeling very hairy and beard and very fat because during the lockdown I gained weight during the lockdown, because I was doing a lot of writing and couldn’t travel much, and I had a slight injury which means I can’t do the training that a lot of other things were doing “

“People feel self-conscious about the weight they may have put on, or the fact that their hair has grown for a long time, all of these things I thought, actually it’s not a bad way to start, actually just admitting at first, saying,” It doesn’t matter , You can skip it, but you pass it. “

“There are a lot of layers and little things that we put in place to try to make people feel good about it all, and we try to give people that kind of positivity.”

The DIY SOS project came about when Nick met Ben Clifford at the Daily Mirrors Pride of Britain last year after he won the Community Partner Award

The Surfability team was in desperate need of help being forced to operate from a frequently overflowing minibus shelter

“We had no facilities when we started in 2013, we worked from a car or truck, and then finally we had a bus shelter out of use,” explains Ben Clifford, the brains behind surfing school.

“We had to constantly save water from the floods There were no lights The wetsuits were likely to remain wet due to the lack of heating or ventilation

“Parents had to bring their own tables to change their children It was really difficult sometimes you feel like giving up, you have sad moments, but we kept it up”

After volunteering more than a decade ago at a one-time surf camp for children with autism, Ben was the inspiration to create a sure-fire school

“I volunteered selfishly because I thought it would be a nice weekend in Devon says father of three,“ I wasn’t prepared for the effect that would have on me

“It was just unbelievable. I just thought what a shame. This was a one-time event and not something that happens all the time. Everything has grown from there. We are now helping around 500 children”

Ben, who is Team Director of Welsh Parasurfing, was able to offer surf-based activities with a £ 120,000 Kids in Need grant over three years in addition to building a DIY SOS

At the end of the episode, viewers will see smiling kids skateboarding as their proud parents watch from the beach in tears of joy

Seven-year-old Jeremiah, who was born with three missing limbs, is definitely feeling this thrill as he heads toward the sea in full force and jumps on a surfboard, laughing as his mother “screams her head”

While nine-year-old Rawan, who was diagnosed with an inoperable brain tumor at 10 weeks of age, was going into the water at another moment of a distended heart

Ben says it is these “wow” everyday moments that make his job so special, despite the challenges

“This is a dream come true that will help a lot of people. I don’t think inclusion should be something exceptional here, everyone can be safe and generous and break down their barriers,” says Ben

Nick adds: “It really shows what would happen if people came together and worked together and believed in each other”
