Anyone know of a cleaner who might be willing to do an hour (possibly two?) cleaning a studio flat fortnightly after lockdown?

Keyworker replied to Iain Meek's discussion greening the estate?
"Well done Iain/Christine Orchards would be particularly welcome in the (unfortunately listed) Soviet-style concrete plaza next to The Shakespeare pub. Who wouldn't prefer looking down on a little green space to all that miserable grey concrete?!"

"It sounds to me very much as though Judith Barnes is railing against the culture of complacency, backscratching and graft within the City and her resilience should be applauded. No matter who tries to marginalise and belittle her with semantics"
