Description

This is the home of Edwin and Mahvash Graham.
We are on the shore of Lough Neagh near Aghalee village. We have two acres of land, a small vegetable garden and some poultry. Our house is heated solely by wood burning stoves with a solar panel providing the hot water, so we are in constant need of firewood meaning that there is lots of tasks to be done cutting and splitting and stacking wood.
For the vegetable garden we get compost from our neighbour farmer so assistance in shifting it is needed.
We also assist in maintaining two public amenity sites at Bartin's Bay and Derrymore Quay so in the summer there is help needed gathering litter, cutting hedges and cutting grass.
We have a strict no-smoking policy and a no-alcohol policy in the house.
