  • Description

    Description

    I am an English, retired language teacher, loving a sociable laid-back life in an English village. However, now slightly disabled, I am no longer able to cope with my small house and garden Hampshire. I can usually only offer one week's volunteering to a single person. I need help with housework, gardening, and painting and decorating in return for board, lodging, language tuition and sightseeing. I am used to having people in my house as I have hosted foreign students in the past, and also ran a B & B. I eat mainly vegetarian food.

    Looking for general help with tidying the small garden a few hours a day. Help needed indoors eg spring cleaning, cooking, but particularly painting and decorating. You could have plenty of time off and I can offer language tuition.
