    We would really like some help with our garden, pruning trees and weeding, due to illness and operations, we cannot do as much as we used to, hence the need of some assistance. We have been very involved in all aspects of Rotary over many years, as well as Local Body Council, and various other organizations. Had several businesses connected to the tourist industry mainly the Central Otago area around Queenstown. Colin and I have various hobbies including vintage and classic cars, he spends many hours just pottering around in his garage. Things that Rosemary enjoys are Patchwork and quilting, crochet, knitting, painting, decoupage,
    We have two adult children, and 6 Grand children. Tania our daughter lives in this area she has her own computer business, also is a very talented artist. Wayne our son is an airline pilot living in Dubai, they have four children.

  • Arbeit


    We have a beautiful large property but need help with weeding and want mulching spread on garden, and general outside tidying. Also we would occasionally like our spoutings cleaned out on the house, it is two storied so would have to climb a ladder.Sometimes window cleaning, if wet outside there is always some ironing to do.

    We live in the small seaside village of Hampden, very popular with overseas tourists, 30 minutes South of Oamaru town, and it's much visited historic precinct, beautiful buildings and harbour. Penguin Colony also in this vicinity. Also we have the very famous Moeraki Boulders, and long clean sandy beaches. Fishing charters operate from nearby.
    50 mins further south is Dunedin, Famous for its University, Larnach Castle, and magnificent Railway Station. A short drive down the Otago Peninsula is the Albatross Colony. Port Chalmers is interesting with many Cafes, gift shops and a cruise ship base .
