The charity coffee morning held at the Coach House Inn on Saturday 4 May raised the amazing sum of £460 for the Scarborough and Ryedale Mountain Rescue Team. There was an excellent turnout of locals and visitors who had the opportunity to see some of the kit and vehicles the team use in their vital work in the North Yorkshire area.

Over seventy people attended a very interesting talk on Rosedale’s barn owls, held in St Mary and St Lawrence Church on Wednesday 6 March. The event was in aid of the Save Rosedale Church Appeal and raised the magnificent sum of £978 from donations and an auction of a print of owlets on an owl box.

Heartfelt thanks to the volunteers who set up and hosted this very successful evening.
