Housekeeping Notices

Disabled Parking Bays
The subject of disabled parking has been revisited with BASScare management along with feedback from the general Hester community. Please note the disabled parking bays are for visitors’ use ONLY and all Hester residents are to park in their own allocated parking bays.

Evacuation Kit
Hester now has an emergency Evacuation Kit containing a torch, a high vis jacket, first aid kit and a list noting residents who are away or who have guests staying with them.
Once again we would like to re-enforce the need for residents to notify staff if you are going to be away overnight or longer, or have guests staying.

Residents’ Committee Meeting
If you have any issues you would like raised at the Residents’ Committee Meeting, please put it in writing and submit it to the Residents’ Committee mailbox. This way, all the Committee members have a written record of subjects to be raised.

Rubbish Disposal
Please ensure all rubbish placed in the rubbish chutes is bagged. (This does not apply to co-mingled re-cycling).
