    I'M LOOKING FOR ENTHUSIASTIC AND ENERGETIC VOLUNTEERS FOR LATE AUGUST AND SEPTEMBER TO HELP ME IN MY LARGE BEAUTIFUL GARDEN

    I NEED A COUPLE OF STRONG WORKAWAYERS TO HELP ME LAY A LAWN AND DIG OUT SOME NEW PLANTING AREAS. THEY WILL BE SOME SERIOUS PHYSICAL TASKS....BUT WE CAN HAVE A LOT OF FUN: BONFIRES, BBQS, AND ABOVE ALL THE HOT TUB!!


    Hi - my name is Gillian . I am a very positive outgoing person, I like meeting new people and socialising, and I have a good sense of humour. I've been renovating my house and creating a garden for the last 7 years and during that time I've hosted over 30 volunteers and had some brilliant times.

    My house is in the middle of the green English countryside, 4 miles from the South Coast of England in the county of East Sussex. The house is on a country lane on the edge of a farm, with sheep in the next field.

    You will be near the seaside towns of Hastings, Bexhill and Battle. There are rail links to London, but there is NO PUBLIC TRANSPORT - trains or buses - within walking distance of my house. I'm happy to drive you to and from the station, and I can take you out at the weekends to see nearby tourist towns and English culture. If you have your own transport there is parking space for a car. I have good access to internet. I have a tabby cat called Chloe.

    THANKS FOR READING MY PROFILE

    You will need old clothes and boots to work in that you don't mind getting dirty. Don't forget warm clothes for the evenings. And don't forget to bring your bathers for the HOT TUB IN THE GARDEN!!

    If you don't mind physical work, and you like socialising, this could be for you.
