Car Parking Permits & Membership

These must be renewed by the 30th of April. If there are no changes to your name, address or car registration then just call into the PC after 9.15 / 11.00am Masses in April with your payment and the membership cards and passes are ready for you collect.

Alternatively, you can collect one of the forms from the back of church, the PC lobby or the attendant’s office in the car park and follow the instructions on the form. If there are any changes, it is easiest to bring your documents to the PC after Mass.

Due to an expansion of the activities of the Parish Club over the last year, we are required to register for VAT, which is now chargeable at standard rate. The annual charges for membership and car parking will be held at last year’s rates, prior to the addition of VAT.

Passover Meal – March 2016

Wedding Reception Darlington

A Recent Wedding

Some lovely feedback from a recent wedding reception held at the centre.

“We had a wonderful day. Can you pass on my thanks to all the staff who were fabulous, everyone commented on how great the venue was, a real hidden gem. I have had a couple of requests from people wanting your number and I have passed this on. I can honestly say the organisation staff and venue were excellent and just what we needed.”

 Thank you for all your hard work the bar staff were excellent.

Refugee Aid Night

STARS – Adventures of Mr Toad

This last week has seen our very own STARS (St Augustine’s Repertory Society) put on an amazing show. This years January slot was taken with ‘The Adventures of Mr Toad’ – Produced & Directed by Brian Coady.

With a cast of regular STARS performers, as well as new, the performance from Wednesday through to Saturday have had sell out audiences and brought a superb family show to the town for many to see.

It was also the first major performance in the newly refurbished hall and theatre. The new stage truss system was in use, allowing the team to use more modern and intelligent lighting to create the effects.

If you had the pleasure of seeing the show thank you for coming, and to those involved in putting the show on, from set building, makeup, costume, technical and of course to the cast, well done!

 

Christmas Wreath Event

On the 28th of November we had a lovely afternoon in the hall with our friend Mickey from the Chatsworth Estate.  He taught a load of us how to make Christmas Wreaths and the results were spectacular !

There was mulled wine, cake and lots and lots of chat and laughter, it was a great way to start the festive season and we’re definitely thinking of doing it again next year.

Wreaths

Film Night – It’s A Wonderful Life

On the 23rd of December (which we think is perfect timing) at 8pm in our newly refurbished Parish Centre hall we are showing the best Christmas film ever made; It’s A Wonderful Life.

If you’ve never seen it before, you’re in for a treat.  If you have seen it before come along and see how it how it should be seen, in a big room, surrounded by family and friends where you can weep silently with happiness and nobody can see you in the dark.

And of course there will be popcorn and choc-ices. The bar will definitely be open if you fancy something a little stronger and as always you can grab a tea or coffee.  We might also provide hankies… perfect !
