COUPLE or SINGLE WORKAWAYER REQUIRED OCTOBER 2019
1st - 22nd October.
County Durham, UK
We are Philippa and Allan, a sociable, well-travelled and fun couple in our mid 50s (now semi-retired: We run a business from home part-time and Philippa does some acting) We have a house in France where we have hosted workawayers for the past 7 years but are now looking for help in County Durham for dates in October 2019 (around 3 weeks)
We are looking for help refurbishing a property we are in the process of buying. Lots of wallpaper stripping, painting, lifting carpets , general maintenance to do. (It currently looks like Miss Marple lived here!!)
We own a cottage nearby which is where we will be staying (at least most of the time) As the other house improves, we may move into there. You will have your own bedroom and full facilities, including TV and Wifi etc. When in the cottage. All meals are provided of course.
We are looking for volunteer help for around 5 hours per day, 5 days per week (Flexible) You will be fed well. Allan loves cooking and we tend to go for home-made meals rather than processed stuff. However, we are unable to cater for strict vegetarians or vegans as we are both meat/fish eaters.
Looking forward to hearing from you!
PS We don't normally dress up in strange garb! (re pic) We put on a Murder Mystery whilst we had workawayers with us!
Entretien / Bricolage
Cuisine / courses
Aide à la maison
We are happy to drop you at bus or train stations or take you out and about and of course will provide transport to the various different workaway bases. Lots to see and do in both areas. We enjoy socialising, pub quizzes and good conversation over a glass of wine.
We are looking for sociable and friendly workawayers who have some previous work experience.
We like practically minded people (prefer aged 22+) who don't mind getting 'stuck in' and can use their own initiative and have a 'can do' attitude in helping unsupervised. Whilst we are happy to host people from any nationality, we would ask that your English is of a good standard. We always appreciate help with usual household chores too :-)
There is an opportunity to see a beautiful part of England. We may also take a short trip to Scotland, but that isn’t definite yet.
Comfortable accommodation in County Durham. Own room.
Loads of stuff to do and places to see, rich in heritage and stunning countryside.
