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.
The Rosedale Abbey Home School Association is hosting a Body Shop party on Wednesday 18 October from 6.30 to 9.00pm in the Rosedale Abbey Community Primary School.
Come along to find some great Christmas present ideas and, of course, spoil yourself!
Refreshments will be available and all proceeds will go to the School.
Hope to see you all at the School on Wednesday evening.
The coffee morning in aid of the Rosedale History Society held in the Coach House Inn raised £260, a valuable contribution to the running of the Society as, for example, it will help cover the costs of the annual research fees for the British Library and contributions to cover the cost of room hire and of broadband provision in the Reading Room.
Lots of chat, cakes and coffee!
Many thanks to all who donated cash, bought cakes and calendars and gave prizes for the raffle, and to Dave and Ali at the Coach House and to Margaret, Janet and Carol for running the raffle with such efficiency.
The next coffee morning will be on Saturday 4 November between 10.00 and 12.00 am, in aid of the Women’s Institute and will also include a craft fair. Also for your diaries, the Christmas Auction will held in the Coach House on Saturday 18 November starting at 8.30pm – auction lots gratefully received.
By courtesy of the proprietor, there will be a coffee morning in the Coach House Inn on Saturday 7 October between 10.00 and 12.00 am in aid of the Rosedale History Society, As well as the ever popular cake sales and raffle, there will be displays of archive photographs and information on family, social and industrial history of the dale. There will also be an update on the This Exploited Land of Iron project.
Coffee and good company

A coffee morning and the ever-popular raffle and cake sale in aid of the ‘Save Rosedale Abbey Church’ appeal raised the magnificent sum of £523, thanks to the generosity of those attending and those who donated cakes and raffle prizes. Also, sixty five of the Rosedale 2018 calendars have been sold so far, therefore nearly £1200 had been raised from Show Day to date. The remaining copies of the very popular calendar are for sale in the Abbey Stores, Graze of the Green, the Coach House Inn and the White Horse Farm Inn at £10 per copy – get yours now before they all go!

“Do you want water on those?”
Sunshine, showers and a blustery wind typified show day at Rosedale on Saturday 19 August, but as usual the crowds of locals and visitors came out and enjoyed the varied displays of horses and other livestock, exhibitions, trade stands and live music throughout the day.

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:
