About this sitter

Single male with a lot of world experience. Two daughters and three granddaughters, who are living their own lives now, unless bank of dad required!!

Retired Police Officer, followed by 7 years in the Environment Agency where i worked on the rivers helping to maintain them as well as associated flood defenses.

Figure it's my time now, want to travel, create new memories and experience and see what the world has to offer.

Still very fit, keep active, work hard and always up for a challenge. Enjoy playing golf, so hopefully will get the opportunity to play the odd game.

Why they want to house sit

Looking for that opportunity to meet new people, and experience different cultures and to broaden my understanding of our very diverse world, and most importantly, create new memories and possibly friendships.

Their experience

I have had the opportunity to live a very interesting life. My children are all grown up living their own lives with children of their own, though they are very much apart of my life as I am to them.

I like to think I’m mature, responsible, and trustworthy.

I am currently travelling around working for different hosts using the: HelpX scheme, whether in the gardens, DIY or general maintenance.

During my life I have had a number of pets, from cats, dogs and the odd reptile, (daughters) so I am very familiar with animals. If fact I would say waking the dog is one of life’s great pleasures.

What can they bring to the assignment

Maturity, trust, responsibility and experience and a willingness to get involved.

House sitter

Terry is a wonderful man, very kind, always a smile and a good word.He watched my house for a month and took really good care of my dogs cat, house, pools etc, After that he stayed on for a couple of weeks as a volunteer and was hard working, nothing was ever too much for him and it was a real pleasure having him here.He is very responsible, hard working and very trustworthy and fun to be around with. I can not have enough praise for him and can only highly recommend him. It was a pleasure meeting him and having him here, he can always come back here and I hope to have him house sit for me again in the future.Thank you Terry.
