I would like to thank in anticipation those residents participating for their assistance and support in such an important process that will benefit us all going forward.

There is a lot more activity in our worm bins than there is with the book worms amongst the community, as the nutritional juice is flowing strong in the basement, but the creative juice above is as dry as a bone.

Who knows, it may even rocket to the top of Hester Canterbury’s Best Book List?

Week Two of the Winter Menu starts on Monday 26 June.

Bon Appetit!

As part of the final install of the back-up Generator Infrastructure, contractors will be performing a full test of the system on Wednesday 28 June from 9am. This will include positioning a portable generator in the Faversham House car park along the west wing side and a planned 30 minute shut down of all power to the Hester Canterbury Basement Car Park. We will ensure that the car park gate is in the open position prior to the shutdown, however, if you do need to navigate the basement car park during the power outage, please take extreme caution and let me know if you require any assistance. Thank you.

Have a wonderful week and take care.
