The annual Christmas Auction took place in a packed out Coach House Inn in Rosedale Abbey on Saturday night and raised the magnificent sum of £2,110 for the Rosedale Village Hall/Reading Room. The 2021 figure was £1,756 so well done to everyone involved.
Heartfelt thanks to all who donated items so generously, and to Lorraine and Trevor Dale, Sue Foster, Lorrie Westwood and Dave Seller for setting up and conducting the auction with such good humour. Also many thanks to Dave Oakey and his Coach House team for their efficiency and patience throughout the very busy evening.
