“Thank you again Michelle for being a fabulous host! Jess thank you for all your support in organising our event and Sarah for helping us from the start.  As I mentioned to you on the night and the following day, Mingara exceeded my expectations in providing such a fantastic venue and wonderful service. Our guests (and us!) raved about the night and a large part of its success was the venue…we’ll definitely be back!!”
Joanne, Central Coast Community College

“Dear Jess, I wish to express my sincere appreciation to you and the Staff of Mingara for the tremendous job that was done in organising the venue set up and the outstanding food that was served at the State Conference for Justices of the Peace.  All the guests present commented on the quality of the food and I must for one say it was the best meal I have ever had at Mingara and I was served the Chicken and could not fault it.   The luncheon was excellent with plenty of selections and the staff were always willing to help us in any way.  I would have no hesitation in recommending Mingara to any group organising a large function as I do not believe we could have had better anywhere.  Please pass on my thanks to all involved and I thank you for all you did.  Everything went splendidly with no problems and your efforts are greatly appreciated.”
Barbara Dillon OAM JP, President Tuggerah Lakes Branch NSWJA

“Hi Jess.  I just wanted to say thank you so much for all that you did in preparing the room and refreshments for a successful meeting. It was a great success and everyone agreed, a great venue.”
Judy, Merck Sharp & Dohme

“Hi Jess, I would like you to pass on my heartfelt thanks to yourself, Shane, AJ and all of the other staff members who helped to make our CWA conference so fantastic.  The food was superb, and I have only received good remarks about all the restaurants.  Those who held Twinning Dinners in the Indigo were amazed at the promptness and quality of the meals delivered to their tables, and especially the friendly attitude of all the staff there.

I have had many remarks on the friendliness of ‘the man with the lovely smile’ who greeted everyone as they came in every morning.  And also the Welcome desk staff.

The Gala Dinner was wonderful and I think most of the plates went back cleaned up. Thank you to all the staff who worked to help up set up the tables and then waited on us in a very professional, friendly manner.  It made for a wonderful night.

What can I say about you.  One of the most proficient people that I have ever worked with. Everything that you have done for us in the time leading up to conference and during the last week was excellent.  You were very much appreciated by all.

Thank you all, once again, for everything.”
Lynne, Northumberland Group CWA of NSW

“Thank you Michelle, your support yesterday was excellent and greatly appreciated.  I will certainly be recommending Mingara as a venue for future events.
Frances, FACS

“Hi Michelle, Our contest on Saturday was very successful. The room was excellent and the setting up perfect. The attention given to us by your club’s people on the day was also excellent. Our visitors were most impressed.  Thank you for your invaluable  assistance in making our contest a success. And thank you to Mingara Recreation Club for providing the venue.”
Greg, Toastmasters Area 24 Director

“Ladies, I just wanted to thank you both so much for everything you did for our function. I know you were just doing your job but you both do it so well and we were all so impressed with everything you provided.  Every issue I threw at you, you had a solution and I thank you so much.”
Troy, Fundraiser organiser


“Good morning Jess, I would like to thank you and the Mingara Events team for assisting in the delivery of our annual conference event. I make special mention of Karen who was terrific in responding to our needs with professionalism and courtesy.  Kindly pass our appreciation also to the catering staff who provided lunch and refreshments enjoyed by all.”
Kathren, Central Coast Local Health District


“Hello Jess, Thanks you for your post-event message relating to our Munmorah Reunion at Mingara last Tuesday. The aftermath of Tuesday’s Luncheon has been somewhat overwhelming and this is due in no small measure to the Mingara venue, and the tremendous effort by your management and staff. Without limiting the coverage of this acknowledgement, I was particularly impressed with . . . . .

  • The preparatory activity that had the reception and display facilities in the Foyer awaiting our arrival, and the Showroom table decor similarly arranged.
  • The willingness of your staff to assist our pre-event arrangements, with constructive input and responses to our ‘last minute’ issues.
  • The efficiency and effectiveness of your meal distribution – which had all 340 people served within a very short interval – and the food was hot (always a mass-catering challenge).
  • The general oversight given to the event throughout the booking interval, to ensure that everything ran smoothly.

I would appreciate you passing on these sentiments to the people involved – supervisors, wait-staff, bar staff and others who supported the occasion.”
Bob, Munmorah Power Station Reunion


“Dear Michelle, On behalf of the Berkeley Vale Rugby League and sports club would like to say a big thank you for your help and assistance in make our presentation night at Mingara one of the best we have had in recent years.  Your service before the night and on night was outstanding keeping me informed at all times.”
Graham, Berkeley Vale Rugby League and Sports Club

“Hi Michelle, Just want to say thanks for all your help in assisting us with the Orientation night on Tuesday. Everything went down without a hitch and the showroom was in fantastic condition for the event. The Academy wouldn’t be able to function the way it does without the support of Mingara and staff like yourself so we really appreciate your assistance and patience.”
Mark, Central Coast Academy of Sport

“Hi Michelle, The event went great thank you!  The service and help from events team on the day was brilliant.  Could not fault them.  Everyone had a great time! Thanks so much for all your help!  Talk to you soon for our next event in 2018!”

“Hi, Hayden and I would just like to extend a huge thank you to you and the Mingara team for the wedding reception. We could not have  asked for more and really appreciate all the efforts that went into it. Thank you so much for helping make our day 😊 😊”
Ella and Hayden, Wedding reception bride and groom

“Good Morning Michelle and Sarah, Just wanted to let you both know the feedback from our members for the Christmas Party that you helped us provide has been sensational.  Brenda and myself have never had this much praise for an event that WAGS has provided and it has been unanimous.  The food was amazing, as close to a la carte as we, as a club have had, so please pass on our gratitude to your chefs, and nothing but ticks of approval for the DJ provided.  So many of our members agree, this was our best ever, so thank you for your attentiveness through the latter half of the year, to help make it that.”
David, WAGS


“Oh Michelle!! Everything was amazing! Your amazing! We can’t thank you emerging for all your hard work! The staff were awesome and I couldn’t fault a thing if I tried! Everything was exceptional. The food was outstanding the set up! I just really don’t know what to say but thank you!! I’m still on a high and it was everything and more than I ever dreamed of!”
Brooke, Wedding reception bride


“ATTENTION:  Management Team: CEO – I would like to congratulate you on the professional and efficient staff you have as part of your Events Team. Last Sunday we celebrated our mother’s 90th Birthday Celebration in a Tasman Room which was an excellent venue. During the planning period I have communicated with Michelle.  Michelle’s assistance, experience and expertise has been extremely helpful throughout and no detail left to chance. She has been very obliging, her communications very prompt and nothing any trouble. The two young ladies who assisted on Sunday were equally as professional, thoughtful and very respectful to all guests.  The food was of a high standard and we received many positive comments. All the staff were very welcoming and the club itself operating at a high standard for such activities.”
Ann, event organiser
