- MYSTERY INSIGHT (Who Am I?)
‘Making history at a very young age, I was one of the first to ride on the foot plate of an R Class Express Locomotive, a reward received for my intricate craftsmanship to trace engineer designed pencil drawings onto fine linen from which blue-prints were made of the R Class Steam Engine. I was the envy of most young boys and my office sat proudly within the magnificent building that is now the Grand Hotel in Spencer Street Melbourne’
So, who could this be? Have a guess to win the weekly prize, you’ve got nothing to lose except how much you know about your neighbours. No one guessed last week’s correctly but to break the suspense, it was me.
- WIPE OFF AFTER WORK OUT
One good thing to come out of COVID is our conditioning to sanitise surfaces where others work and play. Even more apparent is in shared spaces like the Gym, in which all equipment and mats should be wiped down after every use.
Week Three of the Spring Menu starts on Monday 14 November.
Please place any orders by 1pm the Thursday before.
COMING SOON TO A SUN NEAR YOU!
Let there be light and there will be, naturally. Energy Aware have advised that they can potentially commence the installation of Hester Canterbury’s Solar Panels next Monday 14 November at 8am. The initial set-up and install of the panels should take them roughly 2 days to complete, with an additional 2 – 3 days to wire it into our mains.
A crane will be required on Monday to get all the infrastructure and equipment onto the roof and the only location to position this is the driveway to the carpark, so there will be no access to and from between roughly 9am and 1pm, however this is still to be advised. Though Energy Aware are doing everything possible to limit the disruption to the community, there will be some nice pollution in the initial stages of the project for those on the higher floors. If you have any questions regarding this wonderful initiative, please let me know.
CAN YOU SPARE A MINUTE?
Hear that?…No!… That’s the sound of silence on Friday 11 November at 11am when the Hester Canterbury community pause their morning tea for one minute to reflect and honour those who fought for our freedom. The reference to Poppies stems from the opening lines of the World War 1 poem ’In Flanders Fields’ written by Lieutenant Colonel John McCrae who refers to poppies growing among the graves of war victims.
Lest we forget.
Have a fantastic week and take care.
