We are still finalizing the details around the install of the New Carpet in the ground floor communal areas, but I am pleased to advise that the contractors are ready to proceed sooner than later. The issue unfortunately is that they may only be able to provide 48 hours notice before they arrive, so we will not have a lot of time for alternate contingencies while the work is being completed. It has been advised that the New Carpet will be laid in 3 separate sections over 3 days, but this is yet to be confirmed. I shall keep you informed as information comes to hand. Thank you.

If you do not have something already planned for Thursday 2 November at 10am, then it is imperative that you are available on-site at Hester Canterbury for the Annual Fire Briefing and Drill.
A facilitator from Statcom Emergency Management will be attending to brief you on fire safety and what to do if there is an emergency evacuation, plus we will be conducting an actual Fire Drill after the briefing to ensure you understand what to do in the event of an emergency.
Please ensure you are present in the Club Lounge by 10am for the briefing and then you will be asked to return to your apartment for the Evacuation Drill. We cannot stress it enough, the importance of participating in this exercise as it could literally be the difference between life and death in a real situation. If you are concerned about your mobility, this is the perfect platform to discuss this with the Statcom facilitator.
If you have any questions regarding this request or are aware that you will definitely not be available on the day, please let me know at your first convenience.
