Checking the accuracy of my paragraph below

I heard that you will be going for a holiday for few weeks.  Please let me know if I can be of any assistance in looking after the Stadium while you are away, and I would also be able to give Marilyn some help with her administrative work. If you have already found someone else, thats fine and all the best

That sounds like informal writing, so the rules are a little looser.  That said, the first sentence stands out the most to me.  I would omit "that" and use the simple present tense.

 

"I heard you are going..."

 

The other main thing that stands out to me is "thats."  Since that is short for "that is," you should either use the long form or add the missing apostrophe.  You might might want to break up the second sentence into two, though that is not really necessary.

Two minor changes: an apostrophe and a comma.
