We are looking for someone to cut the grass at Styles House in The Cut (calling it a lawn is stretching the imagination a bit). If you know anyone who lives locally and fancies the job, would you ask them to PM me please.

If you're stuck, maybe ask Leathermarket JMB if they'd do it as a favour. Their gardeners have transport and so would be ten minutes' work for them. They might not even charge?

We do use Leathermarket for our minor repairs and might go to them. Thought we'd look to see if there was someone living local who might be interested. We also need to build up our list of local contractors who would be prepared to come and do a few jobs at short notice.

A part time gardener perhaps?

They have one called Karen.

We are very lucky to have a Karen and I recommend everyone to get one. However, because of the working time directive we have to supplement our Karen with some additional help, as we are concerned the EU will intervene. I have also been borrowing the Karen to assist on Hatfields, so she has less time to cut the grass at Styles.

I'm sure you can all see that we need to get an assistant Karen to keep the garden in order.
