THE KZN PHILHARMONIC ORCHESTRA WILL BE PERFORMING ONCE AGAIN ON THE CAISTER VERANDA ON FRIDAY THE 20TH MARCH 2020 AT 11.00 AM. PLEASE SAVE THE DATE.

RESIDENTS USING THE LIBRARY/CARD ROOM ARE RESPECTFULLY REQUESTED TO TURN THE AIR-CONDITIONER OFF WHEN NOT IN USE AS IT HAS BEEN LEFT ON THROUGH THE NIGHT ON SEVERAL OCCASIONS RECENTLY. THIS IS SUCH A WASTE OF A VERY EXPENSIVE RESOURCE AND RESIDENTS ARE URGED TO BE MORE DILIGENT IN THAT RESPECT

THERE HAS BEEN A REQUEST FROM RESIDENTS USING THE LIBRARY / CARD ROOM THAT SILENCE SHOULD BE OBSERVED BY RESIDENTS AND VISITORS WHEN IN CLOSE PROXIMITY.

PLEASE SWITCH OFF YOUR AIR-CONDITIONERS DURING LOAD-SHEDDING AS THE GENERATOR OVERHEATS WHEN OVERLOADED AND THEN IT CUTS OUT FOR SAFETY REASONS, AND THEN WE HAVE LIVE WITH NO POWER AT ALL DURING THIS ELECTRICITY SHUT DOWN.

THE NOISE FACTOR WHEN ALTERATIONS ARE BEING UNDERTAKEN IN APARTMENTS HAS BEEN BROUGHT TO THE MANAGEMENT’S ATTENTION AND THE HOURS OF NOISE RELATED WORK HAS BEEN RESTRICTED TO BETWEEN 07.00 AM AND 13.00 PM. PLEASE ADVISE YOUR CONTRACTORS OF THE CHANGE TO THESE HOURS. WHEN ALTERATIONS ARE TO BE UNDERTAKEN, A NOTICE WILL BE PUT ON THE NOTICE BOARD SO AS RESIDENTS WHO MAY BE AFFECTED CAN BE KEPT INFORMED.

NEW LIFTS HAVE BEEN PLANNED FOR CURRIE RIGHT AND LEFT. WE ARE STILL AWAITING FINAL APPROVAL FROM TOWN PLANNING BEFORE WE MAY COMMENCE WITH THE INSTALLATION OF THE CURRIE RIGHT LEFT AND THEREAFTER THE SECOND LIFT IN CURRIE LEFT. SISTER KAREN WOULD LIKE TO REMIND ALL RESIDENTS TO STORE FOODSTUFF APPROPRIATELY WHEN IN THEIR UNITS. Do NOT LEAVE DESSERTS, EGGS AND DAIRY PRODUCTS ON THE COUNTER. THE INCREASED SUMMER TEMPERATURES ALLOW FOR RAPID SPOILS OF FOODSTUFFS. IF YOU PLAN ON EATING YOUR MEAL A BIT LATER, PLACE IN REFRIGERATOR UNTIL YOU ARE READY TO EAT. THIS INCLUDES TOASTED SANDWICHES, SANDWICHES WITH SPREADS SUCH AS ANCHOVY PASTE, AND EGG BASED DISHES.

AESTHCON HAVE COMPLETED THE REPAIRS TO THE SPALLING ON THE EXTERIOR OF THE HOTEL BLOCK AND THE DAMAGED WINDOW SILLS HAVE ALSO BEEN ATTENDED TO. THANK YOU FOR YOUR PATIENCE DURING THIS INTERRUPTION.

DURING THE SUMMER MONTHS THE AIR CONDITIONERS IN DINING ROOM WILL BE SWITCHED ON PRIOR TO THE MEAL TIMES AND WILL RUN FOR HALF AN HOUR FROM THE COMMENCEMENT OF THAT MEAL TIME. RESIDENTS WHO PREFER TO HAVE THE AIR CONDITIONER OFF WHILE THEY ARE EATING THEIR MEALS ARE ADVISED TO PLEASE DELAY COMING TO THE DINING ROOM FOR HALF AN HOUR AFTER THE MEAL TIME BEGINS.

THE SUMMER RAINS HAVE NOT YET REPLENISHED THE WATER LEVELS IN THE DAMS THAT FEED THE GREATER DURBAN AREA. PLEASE CONTINUE TO USE WATER SPARINGLY AS WE DON’T WANT TO HAVE TO LIVE WITH WATER RESTRICTIONS. HEREWITH THE CURRENT WATER LEVELS OF THE DAMS THAT FEED THE GREATER DURBAN AREA.
