Housekeeping Notices

If you have any old spectacles and sunglasses you no longer want, Alexia has found an optometrist locally who is re-cycling the frames for charity.  Please drop them off in the container on the reception desk.

To avoid any potential hard surface COVID-19 cross contamination occurring, any meals received from the kitchen will now be served on paper plates (that are microwavable) and delivered to your apartment with a complimentary smile thrown in on a paper tray. Please discard the paper tray in the recycling chute when you have finished with it.
In case of potential cross contamination these trays cannot be re-cycled.
