** Help needed in October **

Hi there, we are a family of two, Jeff & Phil (father & son), living in a large Victorian house in a Conservation Area in south London.

We will be cleaning & renovating mainly the middle floor of a 3-storey house with cellar. There is also a large rear garden and smaller garden at the front. Tasks include weeding, pruning, stacking logs, thinning plants in a wildlife pond and general tidying up. In the house we will be packing & moving boxes and furniture, taking up carpets & vinyl, stripping wallpaper, and cleaning & preparing surfaces for painting & decorating. There will be trips in the car to the local Re-cycling Center.

On days off there will be optional trips out to traditional English seaside resorts and you can explore historic London on your doorstep (only 15 minutes away by train). I have some books on "Hidden London" showing illustrated walks in places like Docklands and Whitechapel. You will have your own room with unlimited fast fibre internet 24/7. Meals provided depending on the number of hours worked.

We would like you to work around 5 hours per day 5 days a week but can be quite flexible about this depending on requirements and the English weather! This is a great opportunity to see London on your days off or to join us for trips further afield to East Sussex and Kent. Croydon is one of the largest of the 32 London Boroughs with lots of shops & facilities only 10 minutes walk away. There are also local shops in Addiscombe village a similar distance in the opposite direction. We are well served by trams, buses (including Night buses) and trains that will take you to any part of London or the surrounding area.

Please message me with any questions if our project interests you.
