Housekeeping Notices

  • This Friday 26 November Alexia will be on leave, Rebecca will not be on site on this day either, so if you have an evening meal ordered please do not forget to collect it from the Hester Canterbury kitchen fridge after 4.00pm.
  • BBQ Fire Up – Friday 3 December
    Towards the end of Happy Hour, our new community BBQ will be fired up in the courtyard. The emphasis is on a relaxed laid back affair so save the date. Be prepared to bring your own food, drink and good humour. Please see next week’s newsletter for further details.
  • Hester Christmas Party Friday 10 December
    Please do not forget the cut off date to sign up for the Hester Canterbury Christmas Party is the close of business Monday 29 November. The cost per person for the evening is $45.00 and this includes all food & drinks. We hope you will join us for this very special time of friendship.
  • Hester Canterbury Window Cleaning
    Between the 6 and 10 of December the contractors will be on site at Hester Canterbury to carry out the window cleaning of the building. More details will be provided in next week’s newsletter.
  • Please note that the gym will be closed until further notice because work is being carried out to try to source and repair the water leakage that is occurring. The Thursday gym classes will be able to be held there, however because wall panels have been removed the gym equipment should not be used now until the panels are secure. We are optimistic that at least part of the equipment will be able to be used again net week. More updates will be provided in next week’s newsletter.

Week Four of the Spring Menu starts on Monday 29 November.
Please place any orders by lunchtime the Thursday before.
Bon Appetit!
