LAUNCH OF TOP PERFORMING ARTS ACADEMY IN ST.ANNES We are exited to announce that there will be a top class Performing Arts Academy housed here at Our Lady, Star of the Sea. STARMAKER is a chain of leading Performing Arts Academies in the Northwest, offering exceptional dancing, singing and acting training. With success academies already located in Poulton and Thornton-Cleveleys, we believe that every student should get the chance to shine, gain confidence, improve literacy and communication skills, and have fun, whilst learning new performance skills. We are connected to a Manchester based Casting and Modelling Agency and will be looking for potential talent to sign up to agency. Our student's credits include Playstation, KFC, Merlin and CBBC. The academy will open it's doors on Tuesday January 27th with a FREE Open Day where there will be free workshops and giveaways including memberships and t-shirts! The Open Day will run 4:30pm - 6:30pm and we urge all you budding starlets to attend.

Thanks to one and all who supported the Big Band Christmas Party which was held in the Parish Centre. It was a HUGE success. “Switched on Swing” excelled themselves – with fantastic music and plenty of Christmas spirit. Many, many thanks go to every one of their members. And while we all had a super time, we also made a healthy £300 profit which helps to offset the costs of running the centre (we’re going through a very expensive time right now!). And now another THANK YOU! Sincere thanks go to our Amateur Operatic Society (AOS) for their very welcome cheque for £500, presented to the centre at the fabulous Knights of St Columba (KSC) Carol Concert on 19th December. Every penny raised by the hard work, dedication and enthusiasm of our AOS. The centre welcomes and appreciates gifts like this so much. (By the way, thanks to KSC too - the concert was amazing.) And finally – The monthly Coffee Morning group has also been steadily raising a few funds to try and offset the costs which we occur at the centre every month. So we too are able to offer a humble £50 from our coffers. Many thanks to our regular supporters throughout the year. Please keep supporting us – and do share any ideas for improving the Coffee Morning. Volunteers are always so welcome. Please ring Ann on 728819 if you want to be involved this year. We’d love to have you.
