Not So Young Lunch

83 Members of the 'Not so Young' Club enjoyed  their annual lunch, this year celebrated in the Parish Hall.  Tables and settings produced a remarkable ambience to equal any high class restaurant 
Outside caterers 'AHM Catering Experience' provided an excellent three course meal, enjoyed and praised by all.  
We were delighted with the presence of Fr Frank for the occasion, who gave us his blessing with a prayer and a remembrance of members who had passed away in the passed year. May they rest in Peace.
A tribute was sincerely offered to Julia Lee, the Club's Assistant Chairperson/Secretary who worked tirelessly, co-ordinated with the Caterers to arrange and ensure the event ran smoothly, which realised an outstanding success.  Julia extended an appreciation and thanks to the Caterers for the dining experience and professional application.  Wonderful !

Yee-Ha! All for a good cause!

Sat 31st January saw a hilarious hoe-down organised by St Augustine's Parishioners as a Fun Fund-Raising night in aid of The Pancreatic Cancer Charity.
The large School Hall was booked for the night and thank goodness it was, as there were approx. 180 people supporting the event!
The Lucky Seven Band played and instructed us in the art of the reels, waltzes, circles, squares and dashing sergeants which were attempted with varying degrees of success (and a few bruised toes into the bargain!)
With a 'Ploughmans', kids meals, bar and raffle it looks as if a fantastic amount of money has been raised to help the charity with a request that the money will go towards a new piece of equipment needed at the B.R.I. The full amount raised will be announced in the bulletin soon.
Julia Lee, who was the organiser
said "A HUGE Thank you to everyone who supported the event and to the team who made it happen! What a night!"
