  • Description


    My name is Jane and I am a professional woman. An archaeologist who is currently teaching in Launceston 4 days per week. Involved in horses and Riding Club. Owing to being away for much of the week, I would love some help around the farm and someone to light the fire in the afternoon. Friendly, cheerful person who gets on well with young people.
