Calendar Dates

    Our resident golfer, Joan.K, is proud to announce that she is joining the OBE Club on Thursday 2 February and to celebrate this auspicious occasion, Joan will kindly provide a cake in the Club Lounge for all residents to enjoy.
    It appears that all of Hollywood wanted to play a part in this mouth watering comedy from 2014, ‘Chef’, the story of an acclaimed chef frustrated by his decaying artistic freedom that sets him off on a road trip across America in a food truck. Treat your funny bone and your taste buds Tuesday 7 February at 7:30pm in the Hester Class Cinema.
    Just a reminder that Exterior Clean Melbourne will be present from 7:30am Friday 3 February to clean out and flush the gutters around the entire complex.

There is now 3 designated Parking Bays for the basement car park shopping trolleys, defined by yellow tape. The positioning of these bays is taking into consideration the safest spot for all residents, closest proximity to the lifts, with easy access to the trolleys. Please always return the trolley to its designated bay after use. Thank you.

Have a wonderful week and take care
