THERE’S MOVEMENT AT HESTER
All going well we should see the settlement on 3 apartments this month and be able to throw the front doors open and welcome our New Residents to Hester Canterbury. A large attraction for new people is our beautiful community and the exciting opportunity to build new friendships and share each others stories.
WE’VE MISSED YOU
For those unable to attend, last Friday we welcomed back the Resident Community Events to the Dining Room with a Champagne High Tea. It was a wonderful afternoon with the community coming together over conversation and ample treats. A big thank you goes out to the wonderful Chefs at Faversham House. Looking forward to seeing more faces at the next event.
ALL RISE FOR THE KING
It has been suggested that the residents may like to watch the coronation of King Charles III on Saturday 6 May on the Hester Big Screen in the cinema. I will ask John.M if he could have it screening from 5pm so you can sit back and toast our new head of state.
Week One of the Autumn Menu starts on Monday 08 May.
Please place any orders by 1pm the Thursday before.
MALING ROAD STREETSCAPE IMPROVEMENTS
City of Boroondara’s Planning & Placemaking team would like to invite locals who use the Maling Rd precinct to consider options to make space for streetscape improvements. They have organised a workshop style event in which you will have a chance to talk to Council officers about the streetscape design and proposed future changes for the precinct. You will need to register to attend this event. Light refreshments will be provided.
Eventbrite Bookings Wed, 10 May 2023 5:30 PM – 7:30 PM Location: Canterbury Community Centre 2 Kendall Street Canterbury, VIC 3126
WHAT’S IN A WALK
Even when mobility becomes an issue, the benefits of a daily walk is unquestionable. Starting off with just a 10 – 15 minute stroll around our beautiful gardens or even the ground floor common areas will assist in improved cardiovascular health, will help burn calories, increase muscle strength, can reduce joint pain and maintain flexibility, assist in sleeping, plus help with cognitive decline, all the while providing you with a change of scenery and a chance for social interaction. Once you have found your step, increase your daily walk in 5 minute increments to 30 minutes a day. The proof will be in the walking.
I find it very surprising that there is not a single resident with a favourite travel destination? If you would like to share a travel story in next weeks Newsletter, please submit your adventure to me by next Tuesday.
