The coffee morning held on Saturday 7 July 2018 at the Coach House Inn in aid of the church repair appeal raised over £400 thanks to the outstanding generosity of all who attended. Then, after counting the bucket of change left by Simon and Nicola, the total came to a staggering £554.86!
As usual, the organisers are very grateful to Dave Oakey and the team at the Coach House for laying on the coffee and biscuits, to Margaret, Carol and Janet for their customary efficiency in setting up the raffle and to all who contributed and bought cakes in the sale.
There will be a number of other events in support of the church appeal this year so please keep your eyes on this site and social media for more information and news.
This coming Saturday’s coffee morning is in aid of the Save Rosedale Abbey Church Appeal and will held in the Coach House Inn between 10.00 and 12.00 am.
All the usual attractions will be on offer, including a cake sale, the ever popular raffle and great coffee and biscuits to chat over while supporting this very important cause. So please come along, all are welcome and enjoy the morning in good company.
The first of the combined Rosedale walking and heritage festival went well, with good weather on both days for the walkers and lots of visitors to the Rosedale History Society and Land of Iron heritage information stands. The combined format was a great success, with a lot of very positive feedback from walkers and visitors, such that the final number for this year’s event are around 121 walkers or 50% more than last year, a great tribute to the tireless efforts of Kate Jones and Ian Thompson in organising and promoting the event, to all those who volunteered their time and expertise as walk leaders and to the Rosedale History Society and the Land Of Iron project for their fascinating stands. Watch out for details of the 2019 festival!
The coffee morning in aid of the BHF raised over £330, so many thanks to all who donated/bought raffle prizes, coffee monies and cakes and to The Coach House team for the support as always.
The next coffee morning will be on Saturday 7 July from 10.00 to 12.00 am and will be in aid of the Save Rosedale Abbey Church appeal. We have to raise over £80,000 to save the church for all who live in the dale, so please come along and support this very important local cause.
SAVE ROSEDALE CHURCH
The stalls on the green on the Whit Bank Holiday Monday are an old village tradition in Rosedale – this year they ranged from cakes, bric-a-brac, tombola and even worm juice!
Very many thanks to all who helped throughout the day and to those who donated items for sale. The result was the magnificent sum of £728.00 being raised towards the church roof repair appeal.
The coffee morning in aid of the Riding For The Disabled raised the excellent sum of £300 for this very deserving charity.
Thanks again to all who contributed prizes to the raffle and those who bought tickets and cakes, and to Ali at the Coach House for helping the event run so smoothly.
The next coffee morning will be in support of The British Heart foundation and will be on Saturday 2 June from 10.00 to 12.00 am.
Please come along and support this worthy cause.
The coffee morning in the Coach House Inn on Saturday 7 April 2018 was in aid of the Rosedale mill leat and village pond restoration fund. Thanks to the generosity of all who came, the combined total from cake sales, raffle and coffee came to the wonderful total of £305.00, which will enable routine maintenance on the mill system and pond to continue.
Kate and members of the pond committee would like to thank all who donated prizes and cakes and who contributed to the pond fund in other ways, and to Dave Oakey and the team in the Coach House for sponsoring the event. Also to Margaret, Carol and Janet for organising the raffle with their customary energy and skill.
Finally, please keep an eye on social media and this site for information on calls for volunteers to help clear the pond of excess vegetation once the weather improves!
Just a reminder that the next Tea and Chat for the History Society will be on Sunday 8 April in the Updale Reading Room from 2.00 to 4.00 pm and not on Easter Sunday 1 April.
