Rosedale and Hartoft Support Group Update

The Rosedale and Hartoft Support group has created a collection point in the village for Ryedale Foodbank.  A horsebox has been kindly provided by Pam and Dave Seller on Milk Lane. Any spare tinned goods, cereals, UHT milk, jam and preserves, toiletries and cleaning products can be placed in the box provided and it will be picked up and distributed to those in need in the local area. Further information can be obtained from www.ryedale.foodbank.org.uk

There is also a “Send a Smile” box into which anyone can put a little greeting, drawing, card etc. These would then be included in any deliveries within our area or posted through local doors just to remind people that we all care.

We have also included a general book swap box and provided some posters to colour in which are a part of the campaign to thank our local posties. A bit of mindful activity for you and the children.

Rosedale Show 2020

With great regret, the Rosedale Show Committee has announced that the Show has been cancelled for this year. There were just too many forward financial commitments to be made now which could be put at risk later if any Wuhan Flu measures are still in place in August, as now seems likely from government forecasts.

Heavy Horses from 2019

Fingers crossed and see you all in 2021!

We hope that everyone manages to stay well until we can all get together again.

Coffee Morning – 7 March 2020

The coffee morning held in the Coach House Inn on Saturday 7 March was in aid of Guide Dogs for The Blind. The following is a message from Angela Gage, our local coordinator for the charity:

‘To all of you who supported the coffee morning in aid of Guide Dogs, a huge thank you from the Guide Dogs staff, from the people with sight loss, from the dogs whose dinners you provide and from myself.

These dogs help people to be independent and often fulfil their dreams. They provide companionship, support and protection as well as enabling their owners to socialise. I was therefore thrilled to be able to send a cheque for £300 to the charity from us all.

I also want to thanks Beth at the Coach House and to Margaret, Carol, Janet and Paddy for their help with the raffle. Angela’

Over £250 was collected for the Yorkshire Air Ambulance on the night, so heartfelt thanks to all who donated and to Adrian and Diane Crawford and Linda Chambers for the musical accompaniment, mince pies and mulled cider, an appropriate start to a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

Grand Christmas Auction 2019 – Saturday 30 November 2019

Rosedale’s traditional Christmas Auction in aid of the Reading Room/Village Hall was held at the Coach House Inn on Saturday night.

Getting in to the Spirit of Christmas!
Our Master of Ceremonies in full flow

As ever, many thanks go to Dave Oakey and the Coach House team for their cheerful and professional service throughout the hectic evening and to Dave Seller and his assistants for auctioning of the huge number of lots so efficiently – a memorable night in Rosedale and a great start to the Festive Season.
