    It could be said that this title is a play on words. ‘The Perfect Storm’ starring heart throb George Clooney is a biographical drama based on a non-fiction book of the same name, and tells the tale of the formation of a killer storm in the North Atlantic that engulfs a small fishing vessel that chooses to put its catch ahead of the crews own safety. Take your sea sick pills, don your life jacket and prepare to get wet, this coming Tuesday 8 August at 7:30pm in Hester Class.

Hester Newsletter 02 August


With Spring fast approaching there is time for one last French Stew washed down with the warm balance of zestful conversation and community. Place your social calendar on hold and save a seat for the Residents Community Lunch event on Friday 25 August at 12 noon, in the Dining Room. Sit back with a comfort drink (BYO) as you enjoy fine dining table service Hester style, while feasting on delicious Winter warmers that will have you transformed into a food coma of delight. There is a sign-up form for the Lunch at Reception and please RSVP by Wednesday 16 August.

Sometimes laughter is the best medicine, so if you don’t have anything on at 1pm on Friday 4 August then get yourself down to Hester Class for the Funny Friday Matinee. We are kicking off this week with an old time classic as the eloquent silver tongued Marx Brothers take you on a comical ride that will have you side saddle in your seat in stitches, laughing along to A Day At The Races.

Week Four of the Winter Menu starts on Monday 07 August.
Please place any orders by 1pm the Thursday before.
Bon Appetit!

Hester Canterbury has been formally recognized for their commitment to quality improvements, implementation of effective systems, processes and team work against the Australian retirement Village Accreditation Scheme (ARVAS) Standards with the Award of Accreditation by QIP.                                                                “Accreditation is a major achievement and a clear demonstration that Hester Canterbury is committed to providing their residents with a high quality living environment. Accreditation is more than a compliance-based program, it recognizes strengths and areas for improvement, which helps Villages / Communities to identify key quality improvement priorities. This should be commended, and QIP congratulates Hester Canterbury on reaching this national benchmark” Gary Smith, Chairman of QIP.
Becoming accredited against the ARVAS Standards involves a thorough and wide ranging review of the Village / Community across multiple areas, including governance, communication, corporate systems, quality of service delivery, environment, team work and relationship management. In order to demonstrate and achieve accreditation against the ARVAS Standards, Hester Canterbury undertook an internal self assessment supported by a team of BASScare staff, followed by an external assessment conducted by an experienced, external QIP Assessor. We will be proud to display the QIP Accredited symbol.
