The perfect couple to care for your home and pets.
58, Retired Painter & Decorator. Part time Supporting Artiste, Film/TV
67, Retired Medical Secretary
Although we love city life we also love being outdoors and enjoy putting on our walking boots. For many years we owned a boat on the river Thames. We are both non-smoking, DBS checked, hold full clean driving licences and have our own transport. We are reliable, practical and resourceful and will take great care of your home and pets.
Colin's father had a very successful building and decorating business and was very proud to hold the Royal Warrant for building works carried out at the Royal Paddocks, Hampton Court. On his father's retirement Colin continued the decorating side of the business and was often entrusted to work in clients homes when they were away on holiday, as it gave them great peace of mind. Since 2012 (on winding down his decorating business), Colin has followed his passion for the Film & TV industry working successfully in this field as a Supporting Artiste. Denise retired in 2015 after a long and successful career as a Senior Medical Secretary in the NHS and private practice in Harley Street.
As well as working in our busy and demanding careers, we have taken every opportunity during our 30 years together to travel extensively and independently throughout the world. In 2007 we were fortunate enough to visit New Zealand for 3 months and joined the "Farm Helpers in New Zealand" scheme, living and helping out on farms. We still love to travel independently and have recently backpacked through Malaysia and Thailand. We have also bought a motorhome to allow us to explore more of the UK and Europe.
We are a caring and responsible couple who have always enjoyed looking after animals. We had a wonderful, much loved Battersea Dogs Home rescue dog, Carla, for 13 years. Over the years we have been entrusted with the care of our family and friends pets and greatly appreciate that they are very important family members. As Denise approached retirement in 2012 and began working part-time, we joined the dog boarding agency "Home from Home", looking after dogs in our own home when their owners were away on holiday. It was lovely to have dogs in our house again and we took great pleasure in their company. Many dogs came to stay on a regular basis, and they all enjoyed their holiday with us. We have exemplary references and testimonials from clients, family and friends and "Home from Home", and can provide their contact details on request.
We are the perfect couple to care for your home and pets.
