    Help

    We have a new fence on our driveway and the posts have plastic bits on them that need to been taken off with various hand tools such as a hammer. This work is fairly slow but doesn't require too much strength making it a job that might suit anyone. We welcome any keen cooks to cook with fresh ingredients at meal time. There will also be odd jobs in and out of the house.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    We have 3 young children so we expect our visitors to be good with children. We are an active family, like to keep fit. We are up early getting children off to school and going to work and expect people can work unsupervised. Volunteers can come into town when I am travelling in and go to places of interest while I am in town. The train station is 20 minutes from our home so I can drop you here if you are wanting to go to Wellington (1 hour 20 minute train ride from Masterton).
