I live in a small market town called Frome in Somerset with my partner and her 7 year old daughter. The town sits on the River Frome, it is very creative and has lots to offer. It has lots of small independent shops, art galleries, markets, cafes and bars and isn’t far from the countryside and woodland. I am working as a delivery driver and my partner and I are both very busy with the day to day tasks of running a house and we need some help to ensure the flow of life runs smoothly. We have a 2 bedroom flat where you would be living, possibly with another workaway, so you will have your own space but it would be nice to share evening meals together to get to know each other better. We are also looking for someone who is good with house renovation, diy, painting and decorating etc. Some experience of gardening would also be good as we are growing our own veg in the garden.

We need help with cooking, cleaning, washing and gardening and we have 2 puppies so they need to be walked daily.
If you have any skills or experience to offer in developing a charity that would be a great advantage as we need help developing a website, a documentary and an art exhibition as well as fundraising for the charity.
