Sticky fingers on windows can quickly spoil the view of the lake & walking boots through the visitor centre can soon make muddy floors, so keeping on top of this is important. We will do our best to tidy as we go along, but a weekly visit from a cleaning angel will help us keep on top of things. The role will include cleaning the floors & windows, keeping the refreshment area hygienic & presentable & of course the loos clean too. If you are a whizz with a mop & enjoy getting things clean & tidy then we need you! You will help maintain high standards of cleanliness & hygiene around our site.
