  • Help


    We require mothers help during the day for our 7 year old son and to collect from School some afternoons during term time . He attends school from 8.30am until 3pm so your day is your own until 3pm. During the Summer holidays you will be needed to care for my son during the day - Monday - Friday.

    Help with general house work: vacuuming, dusting, washing, ironing, mopped floors.
    Must be trustworthy and 100% honest and respectful in our happy home.
    I will not allow visitors into my home without my prior consent, this is purely for the safety of our home and our son.

    We have 3 friendly dogs, so you do need to be a dog lover! A chocolate labrador, a shitzhu and a labradoodle. We do have a big garden for them to run around in but equally there are plenty of lovely forest walks around here to take them on.
    It would be a great if you could help to keep them exercised once a day, during the week whilst I am at work.
