  • Description



    I am a retired lady with a spaniel dog. I live in the ancient and royal burgh of St Andrews in Fife. I moved here last year and am now doing some rentals via a different website and need help to keep housekeeping up to scratch. St Andrews is a lovely place to live with two beaches and golf courses (famously the Old Course where then" Open" championship is played every 4 years). It is a mecca for golfing enthusiasts from all over the world. Also due to historic nature of the town and its University, it is an all-year-round tourist destination and attracts many visitors. Students number 8,000 in term time which starts again in September. So lots going on. I live near to East Sands, harbour and sports centre. I am also only a short distance from coastal walk along cliff tops where you can walk all the way to Edinburgh if so desired!

    There are many other attractions in the area including Dundee a city of many interests including Captain Scott's Discovery sailing ship on which he travelled to the antartic on his ill-fated expedition. It is 30 minutes away by bus.

    Edinburgh is one hour and forty minutes away by train.

    Ancient city of Perth gateway to the highlands is also nearby.

    My son also lives in the town and I have a daughter and grand-children living in Wales.

    I also have an allotment nearby for growing vegetables etc.

    I live in a very quiet area and need help with painting and decorating primarly at this time.

    Some painting of outside fences etc would be welcome as well as hedge cutting etc. I also have allotment garden in Dundee and would be glad of a help with some tidying there.
