It is hoped that the full mobile library service will be resumed in 2022 – details to follow.
Some may have noticed a film crew in the area over the last few days. They a producing a feature film called ‘The Runaways’ about some children who steal a couple of donkeys from Whitby and run away across the moors with them.
Pity about the weather!

As part of the appeal to raise funds to save St Mary and St Lawrence Church in Rosedale Abbey, a 2018 calendar has been produced which will be on sale at Rosedale Show on 19 August in the Rosedale History Society tent on Row F and also in the Church Tea Tent by the entrance to the main ring, for £10 a copy with envelope.
A high quality, full colour calendar showing scenes of Rosedale throughout the year.
The calendar is a lovely reminder of Rosedale and will make an ideal Christmas present, so please make an effort to buy at least one to help us raise the funds for the urgent repairs needed to the church.
The calendar will also be on sale at the church repair appeal coffee morning at the Coach House Inn on Saturday 2 September between 10.00 and 12.00 am – please make a note of the time and date for your diaries.
The festival was blessed by the weather gods and so the number of walkers was slightly up on last year, in spite of there being fewer walks in the programme. Over 80 walkers took part, aged from six to well over sixty, with most of them from outside the dale. Some images from the weekend:

Heartfelt thanks to all who organised this excellent weekend and to the walk leaders for making such a success of it.
