Housekeeping Notices

Vegetable Garden
Parsley seedlings have recently been planted in the vegetable garden, and we ask that you do not pick any stems from the seedlings until they are well established in several weeks’ time.
Our gardening “guru” very thoughtfully harvests whatever produce is ready and places it in the café area for all residents to help themselves to.

The Coffee Machine
We had a very worthwhile visit from the Lavazza representative earlier this week, and have arranged to trial a second coffee machine in mid January. This way all residents have an opportunity to try both machines, form opinions on them and decide which option is their preference.

Julie and Julia (200)

Thursday 5th December, 2pm

Director: Nora Ephron

The film contrasts the life of chef Julia Child in the early years of her culinary career with the life of the young New Yorker Julie Powell, who aspires to cook all 524 recipes in Child’s Cookbook in 364 days. (With captions)

Did you know…

 The History of the Christmas Card.
 Exchanging Christmas cards is a surprisingly recent tradition, the first formal card being for sale in 1843.Designed by an Englishman J.C.Horsley, the printed sentiment read “A Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to you”.
A  thousand of the cards were printed and because it only cost a penny to mail a holiday hello, the cards sold like hot cakes and a new custom was born.

Week One of the Spring Menu starts on Monday 9th December.
Please place any orders by lunchtime the Thursday before.
Bon Appetit!
