Did you know…

Cicero, the great Roman statesman may have uttered these words in 61 BC. Then, they were in common use, although the “’horse” was really an ox and the “cart”, a plow.
This Roman proverb has long has currency in French, German, Italian and English.
It was apparently first translated into English around 1279 and first recorded in the 16th C.

A Note From Lauren

As some of you may already know, this will be my last week at Hester. Having worked here since before most residents had even finished moving in, I wanted to say thankyou to each and every one of you for making Hester such a special community to be a part of. I have previously done a bit of ‘back and forth’ at Hester, however this time I will be leaving permanently to pursue teaching opportunities in the UK. Thank you again for making Hester such a kind and relaxed workplace, I am going to miss it greatly!

Week Three of the Spring Menu starts on Monday 2nd December.
Please place any orders by lunchtime the Thursday before.
Bon Appetit!
