  • Description


    We are four in our family, 1 adult and 3 children aged 13, 11 and 9. We live in a village called Donington, in South Lincolnshire. We are looking for someone to stay for at least 10 months. We have been living here for 4 years. We are in the main village area and also on a main bus route to Spalding and Boston. I have just started working and can still do the morning school runs. I would like someone to collect the children (licence required, manual). Our house is 260 years old!! And our garden is just over an acre (lawn, orchard and woodland). There is a gardener, my only request is help with the school day. The children are quite self sufficient, and like to help out with the cooking and cleaning.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Donington is located in the middle of Boston and Spalding, these are large towns that have plenty for young adults to do. Our village has a 2500 population so not too small, with many local shops. Lincolnshire is filled with National Heritage sights and information is readily available to learn whats going on.

  • Help


    Hello Workawayer, I need some help from end August to 2020. Shorter stays are available to candidates with sufficient feedback. Like with all childcare, references are key.

    What else ...

    We are situated between Boston and Spalding with busses going to both towns. There are restaurants, cinemas, markets, and much more. Both these towns are not far from the house. There are many local walks and sights to see as well as a skateboarding park. However if you just want to relax on your time off, we don't mind.
