  • Description

    Description

    We are a recently retired couple who live in a large house, 2 miles from the centre of Leamington Spa. Our children have grown up and gone away so we have plenty of space in the house.

    We like company and would welcome a volunteer to live as a member of the family and to help with everyday tasks around the house. I enjoy cooking so help with food preparation and clearing up is very welcome. Also there is always lots of ironing to do. Help with computers would be good!

    In January/February I make marmalade which is very time consuming so help over that period is especially needed.

    In the spring and summer we like to grow our own vegetables so help with weeding, watering and other gardening projects is needed.

    In the build up to Xmas an extra pair of hands is always welcome!

    We like to practise our very basic Italian, French and German so If you can help with any of these languages please apply! And you will get lots of opportunities to practice your English.

    There is plenty of free time for the workawayer to go out and discover the local area.

    Echange culturel et opportunités d'apprendre

    We are a very sociable couple who like to converse with our workawayer. We like to find out about their country and we will tell them about English expressions and customs. We like to sit in front of the fire in the evenings after dinner and chat to our workawayer. A lively personality with a good level of English will get on well in our household. If you want to spend every evening in your bedroom talking on your phone or computer, this is not the job for you! This experience is more than just helping - its interacting with us and living as one of the family.
    I like cooking and its great to have another pair of hands chopping vegetables and clearing up after me. I go to the gym a lot and you can come with me if you would like to. Bring your trainers!

    Aide

    The sort of help required is with making meals and clearing up afterwards. Doing some ironing. Assisting with the shopping. Feeding our pets, a cat and a tortoise! Actually the tortoise hibernates between November and March so doesn't need anything doing to it in the winter. Helping with various projects around the house and garden. You can make this job what you want.

    Autres infos...

    We live not far from Stratford Upon Avon, Warwick and Oxford all of which are interesting places to visit. We live in a village on a bus route into Leamington Spa which is 2 miles away - it is walkable. The nearest train station is Leamington Spa and the nearest airport is Birmingham, although lots of our workawayers come via Stansted Airport. You can get a coach to Leamington Spa from London Victoria.
