Hester Jigsaw
Residents may remember May 2016 when Elizabeth Pittman provided Hester residents with the first community jigsaw.

Parking In the Driveway
In an effort to preserve the slate tiles at the entrance of Hester Canterbury. Please do NOT park any vehicles on the driveway by the manager’s office window. “No Parking” signage is now up in this area. This request does not have any bearing on people being dropped off and picked up in this area, although we do request wherever possible that vehicles stay on the actual driveway.
