    Help

    We would ideally like you to do about 5 hours a day, Monday to Friday. It would mostly be maunual work, log splitting, clearing sheds, removing fencing, gardening, strimming, endless bonfires etc. Some work with the children and house would be amazing too, even if just helping hanging out the washing!
