Hi, I'm Jon.
For months now I’ve been enjoying life in London big time – cafes, art galleries, bookshops, garden squares and busy streets.
But now it’s time to see more of the country, especially the English countryside, so here I am on this site.
Not as young as I used to be, but loads of experience there – life has taught me many lessons.
Am a self-starter, am totally open to learning and work very efficiently unsupervised and just get things done.
So, teamwork or solo, count me in . . .
Give me something to do, I’ll go do it and show you when it’s finished.
Always take real pride in whatever I do.
In my travels I have seen chances to help and improve and stayed at places where I could make a difference.
Most recently assembled a bed, repaired kitchen furniture, oiled hinges, repaired a gate latch, weeded gardens (a favourite), tidied yards, pruned plants.
Skills acquired over time are in woodworking, good gardening practice, construction, renovating, painting, general repair work, plus am good with power tools where safety always comes first.
Ready now to get my hands dirty and apply my knowledge where needed.
Active participant in conservation, waste-avoidance, recycling, repurposing, composting and good land stewardship.
I have a keen eye for design and construction, alternative ways of getting a result and enjoy making a difference by improving whatever needs it.
I believe in doing the right thing by nature and people, contributing well and leaving a light footprint on the earth.
As a person: respectful, considerate, clean, vegan, non-drinker, non-smoker, no drugs, no loud music, very cat-friendly.
Intelligent, classical music, literature, movies, coffee, bookshops, theatre, concerts, opera, then more coffee.
Private personality, widely read, appreciate design, architecture, great art, good people.
Am uncomplicated, friendly, balanced, no baggage, appreciative of what's good in the world.
English native, plus I speak French and German, with Spanish and Russian.
Terrific at backgammon, cryptic crosswords . . .
Interest in philanthropy, consciousness, world affairs and love to learn.
Brilliant sense of humour, just brilliant . . .
If you think I could be an asset to you and we might get on well, it would be great to hear from you.
