We are looking for helpers for 4-10 days at a time. We have a landscape gardening project to try and achieve this summer, strong backs welcome.

We are in our 50ís and live in central Watford, a 1 mile journey from the M25. We need help in the house and garden as I have a chronic illness. A single helper needs to be happy with their own company because I can sometimes be too ill to be chatty. Although I did a TEFL course years ago, if you are looking just to learn the language we would not be a good placement in case I am off colour.

We are a 5 minute walk to Watford Junction station (to Euston), 10 minutes from the Metropolitan line (to London stations such as Wembley and Kings Cross), via a pleasant walk through Cassiobury Park. Watford itself has lots of shops, the Colosseum, olympic swimming pool & College (2 mins) a theatre(5 mins), Harlequin shopping centre (5-10 mins), football stadium (Vicarage Road, 10 mins). The Grove golf course is a mile away and the Warner Brothers Leavesden, Harry Potter Studios and Tour is about 2 miles from us. Further away the Roman town of Verulamium, now called St Albans.

We need general help, gardening, cleaning, decorating for the most part. We would like help for 5 hours work a day (28-30hrs a week) in return for lodging. We will provide meals, but be prepared to buy & make meals for yourself if you do not like what we have on offer.(We like spicy foods, meat and garlic)

We would be particularly interested in people who have building trade skills.
