    We are available now and searching for a helper to help demolish some outbuildings

    Welcome to Loughborough, with its award winning market, great pubs and university rated 4th best in the country.

    Hello there...

    We are looking for a motivated, enthusiastic and strong, helper to help with gardening and a 5m x 4m shed/cabin. Also planning/building an extension to the rear of the house.

    You could learn brick laying, concreting and general building
    This week we are laying paving and leveling the ground works.

    We moved into my family home to care for my 82 year old mother, in my spare time, I'm working on the garden and adapting the house for my mothers needs.
    We live in a simple house in the university town of Loughborough in Leicestershire.

    We ask for 4 hours per day of your time for a clean private room and healthy meals.
    We regularly eat meat, but welcome veggies.. Love curries, marmite and traditional English ..

    length of the stay varies but is minimum 1 week.

    There is always a chance to help out cooking, shopping, tidying and house sitting.

    Have a black Labrador "Mutley" and a black cavapoo "Jet".

    Friday afternoon I like a pint of real ale in the town.

    Please get in touch if you'd like to join us for a few days, a week, or even longer - we'd love to hear from you!
