Housekeeping Notices

  • COVID Restriction Update
    A gentle reminder concerning the Victorian Government’s current COVID restrictions.You must wear a facemask every time you are in public, in other words as soon as you leave your apartment your mask must be on and worn properly, that is covering your nose and mouth. Although everyone is missing the company of others, people are not permitted to gather in groups for coffee in any of the public areas.
  • The scarves that were left from our Cancer Council fund raiser have been donated to a refuge and they were very well received; a big thank you for your generosity and thoughtfulness.
  • If you order evening meals please do not forget to return the cleaned crockery to the Hester Canterbury kitchen regularly, thank you for your co-operation.
  • In case you hear unusual noises of a Tuesday morning, just to let you know the collection of co-mingled waste is now on a Tuesday and no longer on Friday.

Week Three of the Winter Menu starts on Monday 23 August.
Please place any orders by lunchtime the Thursday before.
Bon Appetit!
