Hester Newsletter 27 September
IT’S MORE THAN COLLIWOBBLES AND THE OLD ROYS
So maybe AFL football is not your thing, you struggle to recall the colours of the Collingwood or Brisbane club guernseys, you don’t care what the difference is between a ball up and holding the ball, but you would be hard pressed not to be electrified by over 100,000 people all cheering at the same time. Footy fanatic and social butterfly Ann.S is throwing open her hospitality arms and asking you to join her in the Club Lounge this Saturday at 12:30pm for pre AFL Grand Final nibbles and drinks she is kindly providing for all the residents. Afterwards, take the short stroll to Hester Class to enjoy the match on the Big Screen, followed by post game coffee and cake plus a chuckle or two back in the club lounge.
SPRING IS IN THE AIR
Our latest garden guru Heather has been busy transforming a number of Hester Canterbury balconies and courtyards in readiness for the beautiful filtered Spring sunshine, but don’t forget it is also timely to kick start your plants happiness by sprinkling some organic rich Worm Juice around. Bottled for your benefit and available from any of the three refuse rooms in the basement.
ONE SEAT ON THE BUS
Last chance to snap up the remaining seat on the Hester Canterbury Resident Outing to this years Archibald Prize. The day trip on 23 October includes transport, the exhibition and lunch. Sign-Up now at Reception.
Week Three of the Spring Menu starts on Monday 02 October.
Please place orders anytime prior to 3pm the Wednesday before.
THE TASTE OF CHANGE
The introduction of the Hester Canterbury Spring Menu is not the only new addition to the residents dinner table. To deliver a more consistent and refined presentation of the evening meals, we have sourced new dinner plates and bowls as the existing Hester Canterbury crockery was blending in with the mish-mash of Faversham House’s. The new crockery for the evening meals is easily defined with a unique colour and textured pattern and is for Hester Canterbury resident meal use only.
As we only purchased limited stock, it is imperative that if you receive an evening meal that you return the crockery, dirty or clean, to the Hester ground floor kitchen as soon as possible after use so the Faversham Chefs do not run short.
Also, so I am not chasing meal orders each week and sending through the orders to the Faversham Chefs late, delaying their stock orders, I have now changed the cut-off for orders to the Wednesday before by 3pm, but please note you can submit your order anytime before the cut-off.
THE LAUGHS ARE ON YOU
As this Friday 29 September is a public holiday (for some reason), the scheduled Funny Friday Matinee will not take place so I’m leaving you all in charge of finding your own laughs on the day. Lood Guck.
FOOTY FEVER FISH ‘N’ CHIP NIGHT
For those that have signed up for Fish ‘N’ Chip night this Thursday 28 September, make sure to scribble down in your social calendar to be present in the Dining Room at 6pm for a fresh fishy feast. B.Y.O drinks is highly recommended.
Have a fabulous week and take care.
