We are currently unable to take any placements as we have a Family member living in our Accommodation
We are a married couple in our early 60's, Greg works 3or 4 days a week and Ann has a busy life with family and interests. We live in a gabled cottage on 10 acres and have an attached Granny Flat of huge proportions available for our volunteer couple. It is fully self contained, with it's own bathroom, kitchen, bedroom, lounge area, TV etc .We have a pool for your use. We are looking for a NON SMOKING couple(sorry but cigarette smoke makes me unwell)We would hope that if we all get on well that you would stay 1-2 weeks if there is work for you. We would offer accommodation, provisions for your own preparation of breakfast and lunch and having dinner with us. Or if you prefer we have no problem with you preparing your own dinner.If you can cook you may like to make dinner some nights for us all. In return we ask for 20 hours work per week, usually 4 hours per day with 2 days off but if you like I may be able to arrange for you to do some longer days, so you can have more free time.It would be great if you could help Greg on a weekend and have time off during the week.Our sons and their families vist often especially on weekends, they are all in their 30's and good company too. Work may included general maintenance, if you have some building experience some small jobs are needed.We are fair and generous in our dealings but find it dissapointing when volunteers see us as a free ride. We have painting, gardening, small building maintenance jobs, planting trees etc. If you can use a chainsaw that would be a bonus. We can pick you up on arrival and most of the time on your time off take you to transport and pick you up. Although we ask for some notice. We live in a lovely valley and our property is quite picturesque.
