  • Description


    While I have ticked many boxes the main things I would like is helping to renovate and paint the house. Having said that there are opportunities to get involved in many things as the house and garden is big and beautiful and hard to manage alone. Out door wooden construction work for examples. You will need to do some cooking for yourself and the family 3x a week.

    If you are sporty and could take my 15 year old son (and 12 year old daughter) to the park across the road for some ball sports or exercise, this would be amazing! This lock down creates too much time on screens for them.

    We r a fun albeit sometimes excited family of 3 (two preteens and me! Single mum!)

    It's 1min from Palmers Green station.

    All hours can be negotiated and flexibleif needed, up to 25 hours a day.

    I will pay for food and give a budget of 50 a week for this to spend as you like.

    No smoking in house.

    We eat organic free range meat from UK farms or wild game only.

    A couple would be accommodated as we double rooms.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    We have a lot of new people coming in and out and it's a busy house sometimes. A workaway would learn a lot about London life, Buddhism if wanted, have a unique experience of knowing more about unique children who were adopted and have learning difficulties. I'm very good at helping young people know how to plan thier future career and there's such a variety to do to help maintain the house and I'm very experienced at DIY and also VFX for films and TV. I work at a farm in central london where they could come and help too if they wanted, in the community garden I'm developing there and my kids go to a summer school. There will be many opportunities to learn new things if they wanted to. I'm a very creative person who has lots of different jobs that may help experience. Look at my IMDB and LinkedIn pages under Hannah Walker Edwards. I'm also a VFX tutor.

  • Help


    All of the above is a bonus but painting and practical home help is needed.

    Housework, some childcare, cooking and washing kids clothes may sometimes be needed but not necessarily and this can be negotiated.
