Scheduling in a gym workout is not for everyone, however there is so much more to exercise beyond lifting weights, running on a treadmill and sweating profusely. We are very fortunate to now have our own highly trained BASScare Exercise Physiologist Michelle taking the weekly Tuesday morning exercise class, plus offering to assist all residents in maintaining their independence through one-on-one consultations or group classes. Staying active does not mean that you have to commit yourself to an exercise class or daily gym work-out, however it might be just a couple of simple exercises tailored to assist with the rehabilitation of an injury, post operation, or on-going issue that is holding you back. Michelle would love to talk to you about how she may assist you, and I am sure that the group attending her Tuesday class can pay testament to her ability and warmth. If you would like more information or wish to touch base with Michelle, she can be contacted on P: 9880 4716. (This is not Michelle in the photo)

If you are not already aware, Judy has unfortunately injured herself and will be out of action for an extended period of time. Therefore, we are advertising for a babysitter to look after her balcony plants (all care no responsibility) at your apartment.

Week Four of the Autumn Menu starts on Monday 03 April.
Please place any orders by 1pm the Thursday before.
Bon Appetit!

What is in a postcode. Beyond the famed leafy green boulevards, the opulent historical residences and prestigious schools that you all have grown to love by living here, is a history over time that has made Canterbury one of the most sought after postcodes in Melbourne, however bring along your bank manager for support if you are looking to move into the area. Hester Canterbury teeters on the boundary of Canterbury just before it spills over into the just as beautiful suburb of Surrey Hills, with Chatham Road dividing the two suburbs. The suburb of Canterbury literally grew up around the railway station that was built in 1882 as prior to this the area was rural properties for the well to do of the time. The grand old building that was the Post Office built in 1870 still sits proudly as the gateway to Maling Road shops.
Canterbury 3126 has graced such notable residents over time as Nobel Prize winner and first Australian of the Year recipient, Sir MacFarlane Burnet, former Victorian Premier Sir Rupert Hamer, former Federal Leader Andrew Peacock and entertainment royalty the Minogue sisters, Kylie and Dannii.

If we look at the schedule of works, then you should be comfortably resting up back in the Club Lounge and Dining Room before Easter as we witness the final touches being performed this week and into next week, however, let’s not count our chickens yet and set this in stone.

It is wonderful to see so many residents using the Worm Juice on their gardens and the worms do not look like stopping anytime soon. Though it is not imperative that you mix the worm juice first, it is advised that you do a 3 parts water to 1 part worm juice mix before placing it on your plants.
