    Help

    We are looking to smarten up our fabulous house. To do some vegetarian cooking, gardening, watering plants, painting and decorating, sorting and clearing cupboards, cleaning floor coverings and looking after the cat (who is elderly and doesn’t need much!) and any day odd jobs around the house/garden/allotment. We would love it if you can help put up a simple fence in the garden but this isn't essential.

    Hi

    Thanks for looking at my Workaway posting. We’ve now secured a busy helper for July, and early August.

    Hope you get an opportunity soon.
