Need someone to sand and re-oil our wooden kitchen worktops (Woodbridge)

Chris R in Woodbridge
Need someone to strip our wooden kitchen worktops back to bare wood and oil them again (Woodbridge). They are very tired looking and have stains after 5 years! Not a hard or big  job, but I simply don't have the time or equipment. Any suggestions? Chris
