    Help

    My husband Stuart and I Julie..require help around our farm and home..we are both early retirees , sadly we both have a few health problems that are preventing us from keeping the farm , house and gardens in well kept presentation..We would need help to generally tidy the gardens including weedng hedge cuttung , grass cutting. The farm needs buildings cleaning out , general help to do small renovations such as painting , replacing the chicken house roof , trips to and from the local rubbish dump and help if required with the animals.Normally the animals dont require anything other than watering..They are all retired , but of course the horses love a good brush if you are willing.
