We are a couple living on a farm, with a hundred year old Japanese Water Garden, in an attractive rural area, 7 miles from Peebles,( within 1 hr of Edinburgh by a regular bus service.) We have two dogs, a spaniel and a Labrador who enjoy walks whenever possible. We will be moving house in the Spring next year so we are looking for help tidying up the Garden, sheds and house. Also "minding" a senior male who is rather unstable on his feet but enjoys walking round the Garden. Our concerns are obviously the Covid pandemic and have to be mindful of that and any helper would have to be a true country lover.
