In view of the increase in COVID 19 infections and the president’s announcement that the country is now in Level 4 Lockdown, all social activities at the Caister (morning and afternoon tea, movie evenings, bingo, music evenings, croquet, fellowship, mass for Catholics and the bar will be closed) will be put on hold until further notice. Due to the highly contagious Delta Variant, no visitors will be allowed at Caister until further notice.

Service providers in respect hair, nails etc will also not be allowed on the premises until further notice. Residents wanting these services will have to go out and get it done elsewhere.
