Guess What???

The Mynah birds are back again this Spring and have nested in the same tree on the balcony of apartment 1.12. Mother and father are kept very busy feeding four hungry little mouths.

In our Hester Canterbury community, like the rest of Melbourne sometimes it hard to keep upbeat and optimistic at times because of the challenges living with COVID continues to throw at us….yet here at 9 Chatham Road and in Australia we have a lot to be appreciative of and happy about.

To this end would residents please like to share a past (or present) memory of something that gave you joy and made you smile. This would only require you to write a paragraph or two and then give it to Alexia, these recollections will be included in upcoming editions of the newsletter. (If you choose, the author may remain anonymous otherwise only first names will be printed). It can be something as everyday as finding out that we have a nest of baby birds on one of the apartment balconies. We all have something to share that will lift our hearts and make us smile.
