We have recently been away, but are now back home where jobs still need doing!

We live on the southern reaches of Mt Bruce, which is a bird sanctuary where kiwi, kaka and kokako are living freely, we are visited regularly by kaka and lots of other native birds. (but not kiwi and kokako).
We have a large 4 bedroom house, where helpers can have their own room or shared. Helpers would have their own shared bathroom (and own lounge, should they wish) although we would hope that they would join us in our large family/kitchen area. We have a pool table, piano and spa pool.

We are 20 mins from Masterton by car and can easily pick up helpers from train or bus. Would prefer helpers to stay minimum of 2 full days.

We are a semi-retired couple, who still work our farm where we have sheep, cattle and calves. We have 1 dog, who does not come inside the house. We both play music and are members of our local brass band, we both are involved in amateur theatre and have been on stage many times. Jim has run many marathons and usually runs everyday, Barbara enjoys walking and tramping. We are both orienteers.

Being a farm, there are always ongoing projects, fencing, building, spraying with which you could help. If you are really lucky you could be here for haymaking (really hard work, but great fun and social experience). Our large garden need constant weeding which is where we would welcome help. We have recently purchased another property which we will be moving into over the coming weeks, so help will be needing in helping to shift heavier furniture and cleaning the emptying house, and repairing anything that needs it. There will be fencing at the new house.

The Wairarapa is a fantastic place to be.
