    HELP! We need 2 strong, capable, energetic young folk to help us In our garden. We would like to hear from honest folk, with a sense of humour & the desire to get into a good days work. We possibly have 4 days work. We start at 8am & ask for 4½ hours a day. This also includes weekends. David & I have so far enjoyed the excellent help we have had here on our property from workers. Some great tasks have been completed with lots of fun, hard work, & very honest young folk. This is a very special part of Hawkes Bay with stunning views, peace & tranquility. We are only 17 minutes drive from Napier & Hastings, 10 minutes from a surfing beach, close to great walks & cycle tracks. We have bikes available. We ask that any helpers note we would like 4½ hrs work per day & we appreciate helpers who are keen to work hard. Please also note that we do not supply alcohol or personal items such as shampoo & toothpaste. We have a warm & comfortable house, with beautiful views & we provide good food, a clean & comfortable bed with your own bathroom. If you like cooking you are welcome to use our kitchen. We also ask that any helpers who contact us are NON smokers, & we prefer that you have your own vehicle as we live away from public transport. We have a large garden & vegetable garden that regularly needs weeding. We look forward to hearing from helpers who are keen to spend time in Hawke's bay.
