    We want some help painting our house in 2019, its a big house with lots of maintenance needed, woodwork that needs rubbing down and repainting etc. We also have some garden projects to complete, and an allotment where we grow organic veg.
    We are looking for an independent couple, or friends to help out for 1-2 weeks at a time (no long term applicants please) We are happy to be flexible with the work days, so if a few long days and more full free days suits you, then give us a call.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    We are a couple with a dog (we work freelance from our home) and we have 2 university student daughters back in the Summer. We also have a lodger living in the house. Pete is from USA, came here to play basketball and has lived here ever since. Charlotte is an artist. We are both involved in creative industries, working as an photographer/ designer, and videographer/musician. We like good food and music and the outdoors. Pete plays several instruments and plays in a band, he also loves a game of golf.

    We'd like friendly and independent people who are practical with some DIY or decorating/gardening skills , who'd like to learn more and work with us on painting the house and general maintenance. You will need to be able to work independently if we have other projects on, but we will be clear what we need, and have the necessary tools and equipment. Bring your work clothes!

    Our large house overlooks a lovely green park with tennis courts, we have bikes available to borrow, and it’s a 15 mins walk to the beach, the town and the countryside, and an hours trainride to London. The beach is pebbly but popular nevertheless and there is a volleyball, sea-swimming and kayaking community.
