My partner and I and three young children (4 and under) live about 3 miles from Biggar (the nearest town) where a bus can be taken. Edinburgh is about 25 miles and Glasgow just under 40 miles away.

We both have agricultural related jobs but we do not live on a farm. Currently I am on maternity leave. I am looking for someone who can help for about 4 hours a day. Work may involve gardening including weeding, planting, harvesting, lawn mowing, strimming, or painting fences. Indoor work may include help with general household chores. We have not lived here long so we are doing a few home improvements we might need a bit of help with, such as painting. You don't need to have experience with children but to like children would be good. Help might be needed to assist me with the children. We can decide upon the jobs depending on what your strengths and preferences.

We can be flexible on when you work your hours so that you can make the most of the area whilst you are here. For example you might want to help more one day to have a full day off on another day. I myself used helpX when I was travelling abroad so I will do my best that you have a good experience here and it won't be all work and no play. There are buses from Biggar to Edinburgh and elsewhere and nearby train stations (Carstairs and Lanark - can take train to Glasgow/Edinburgh) which we could give you a lift to. We have a bike with helmet that can be borrowed.

Would prefer short stays (possibly about a week) but possibly could do longer. 2 weeks would be maximum. You would be living in our family home.

If you have any questions then please ask.
