The annual show (every August) is run by the Agricultural, Horticultural and Industrial Society. This year will include Cattle, Goats, Heavy Horses, Ponies, jumping, local produce, Rabbits, Vintage Tractors & Scarecrows and much more. More details to follow soon on the Rosedale Show’s website.
Welcome to the Rosedale blog. This is where we share news and information about events in Rosedale and the wider community throughout the year. You’ll also find news about the village timetable, our micro enterprises, school events, clubs, and lively socials.
You will have noticed a lot of BT Openreach operatives and vans in the village recently – well, the good news is that fibre optic cables have been laid from the exchange at Lastingham through to Rosedale Abbey, with work ongoing to extend coverage through the village and up to Thorgill.
Once the contractors have completed the fibre cable laying, it is expected that customers will be able to connect to the network by late July/early August to receive up to 100mps broadband service. More details are being sought and will be published as soon as known.
In view of the virulence of the pandemic and following Government advice, Rosedale PCC has voted to close the church for public worship for the time being. This includes opening the church for private prayer.
Irrespective of how well we can assess and manage the risk in church, it seems entirely wrong to invite people to leave their homes to get to church when the Government’s advice is so strongly to Stay at Home.
Hutton Lane is due to be closed until February 12th to repair the land-slipped section between Hutton le Hole and Keldholme. The council’s alternative route from Hutton le Hole to Kirkbymoorside is via Lowna and Gillamoor and is signed.
This year and in lieu of the usual carols on the green with mulled cider and mince pies held in aid of the Yorkshire Air Ambulance, Charlotte Tomlin played a medley of Christmas tunes on a wintery Christmas Eve to a small but appreciative audience in the village.
Sadly, there will be no ‘Carols on The Green’ by the Christmas Tree this year. We send all donations raised to the Yorkshire Air Ambulance and this year would ask that you continue to support this vital emergency service by making contributions either in local collecting boxes or online or by cheque – details of how to donate are at https://www.yorkshireairambulance.org.uk/support-us/donate/
We hope to see you all next year, to enjoy hot mulled cider and mince pies while singing along to our favourite carols around the village Christmas Tree. In the meantime stay safe and well and have a great Christmas.
