Housekeeping Notices

Due to the rise of numbers of people contracting the COVID-19 virus in Victoria the past week (over a 100 cases), the Victorian Government has again put the following restrictions in place from 11.59 pm Sunday the 21 June 2020:

  • Public gatherings limited to 10 people.
  • Number of visitors to a home now reduced to 5 guests only.

It can not be stressed strongly enough to all residents the importance of observing the government guidelines that have been put in place for the well being of all.
Cavalier attitudes to the guidelines have resulted in the tightening of the restrictions again; if there is little concern for your own welling being please take into account the health of others.
Please note , no group activities (such as the craft group, the jigsaws etc.) will go ahead until further notice. The same restrictions still hold for the Cinema and the Gym.

Please ensure all visitors to Hester Canterbury sign in and out, and also use the hand sanitizer available at the entry of the building.

Hester Maintenance Requests

To expedite any maintenance requests you may have, there is a new “user friendly” Hester Canterbury maintenance form available at the information stand opposite the mail boxes.
Whenever you have a maintenance request, please collect a form, fill it in and drop it into the office.
The request will be recorded to be actioned promptly, and if needed can then be  followed up on by the Hester Canterbury staff.
