  • Description


    We are a busy family of 5 plus a dog living in a village just outside of Lincoln on the east side of England. Becki is Mum and works evenings and weekends, Shaun is Dad and works during the week at the local hospital and the kids are 9, 6 and 4. The eldest is at the local primary school, our 6 year old is home educated and the youngest goes to nursery three days a week. Between the three of them we go to music groups, gym classes, swimming, drama and horse riding as well as play dates and dog walks. The dog, Lily, is a very friendly 2 year old cocker spaniel.

    We need someone friendly and proactive to help with childcare (Mum & Dad’s working hours overlap slightly), cook occasionally, help with chores, take the kids to groups or organise activities for them, maybe walk the dog. We have little projects inside the house and in the garden that we will need help with. We can accommodate a single person plus one child if you’re happy to share a bed.

    We can offer you your own double room with a tv and wifi and loads of time to do your own thing. Lincoln is a small but beautiful city with plenty to do and we have a bus service into the city from the end of our road.

    No smokers please

    We need someone to help out with the childcare, cook occasionally, do a bit of housework (just keeping things tidy and a bit of washing up but not full on cleaning - we have a cleaner) and we would really love someone who can share some new skills with us. We would like to do a few small projects in the house and garden and would love some help with those.

    What else ...

    We live in a village surrounded by countryside and have a bike you can use. There is a small shop in our village and the bus into the city stops at the end of our road. There are a number of bigger cities within an hour or two from Lincoln on the train and London is less than 2 hours on the direct train. Lincoln has plenty to do including sightseeing (cathedral, castle), museums, art galleries, concert venues etc.
