HOLD THAT THOUGHT
The proposed guest author for 18 May, M.K. Jacobs, will be rescheduled to possibly June due to a recent illness, plus being nominated for ‘Book of the Year’. A sign-up form will be placed on the Reception desk once a new date has been confirmed.
The results are in for the Hester Canterbury Resident Survey and I wish to thank all residents that participated for taking the time to complete the survey and provide valuable feedback. The results will now be compiled and analysed.
SIGN UP IN BASEMENT
You may have already noticed that we now have apartment allocation signs on the Storage Cages as an indicator of which car space, or spaces, and storage cage belongs to which apartment. This will assist new residents, family members, maintenance staff, and some residents to align car spaces with apartments.
Week Two of the Autumn Menu starts on Monday 15 May.
Please place any orders by 1pm the Thursday before.
ARMCHAIR TRAVEL DELIGHTS
I’ve been to many beautiful places around the world but one of the most memorable was in Lapland. We went up in a ski-lift, then walked through snow to the top of the Mountain where our hosts were waiting with champagne. We sipped our champers at midnight with the sun shining brightly overhead. I don’t know why but I had to be helped back down the mountain by my husband holding one arm and a nice Japanese gentleman the other as the snow must have become slippery!
