The Parish Centre, for legal reasons, is run by two committees:
1 – The St Augustine’s Darlington Parish Centre Club Ltd.
This is a limited liability company that runs The Club bit of the PC, in fact it runs the bar and the car park. The Committee is actually called the Board of Directors and meet once per month. There are seven of them.
2 – The Parish Centre Committee.
Is responsible for running ‘the rest’ of the PC. It has 14 members and meets monthly, on a different day from the Club directors. This committee always includes the Parish Priest of St Augustine’s and always outnumbers the Directors.
3 – The Officers.
For reasons of continuity and joined-up-thinking the offices (chair, treasurer, secretary, bookings secretary) of both committees are held by the same people, who attend both monthly meetings.
