ROSEDALE CALENDAR 2022

Posted on . No Comments

It’s that time again – the splendid Rosedale Calendar for 2022 in aid of the Save Rosedale Church Appeal is now out and available from Abbey Stores, Graze on The Green and Gillies Jones Glass Studio for £10 a copy, or from rosedalehistory@hotmail.co.uk for £12 with post and packaging included.

St Mary and St Lawrence Church East Window

These make ideal Christmas presents so buy one for the house and another one or two to send to family and friends elsewhere to remind them of lovely Rosedale!

All funds raised go to support this vital project, where another £80,000 is needed to restore and preserve our church for future generations.

Rosedale Church Fete – 15 August 2021

Posted on . No Comments

The Church Fete held this Sunday to raise funds for the church roof appeal was blessed with dry weather which helped produce an unexpectedly high attendance from visitors and locals alike, which in turn produced over £900 for the appeal. Afternote: follow-on sales and contributions have now raised the figure to over £1000 – a splendid effort all round.

There were plant and handicraft stalls, sales of old books, a treasure trail for the children and the ever popular tombola and tea and cake stalls in the church. The crowds were entertained with some wonderful singing by a local choir, the Moorland Singers, all of which made for a traditional village fete.

Heartfelt thanks to all who helped organise the event and ran the various stalls, those who contributed tombola prizes and items for sale and to the choir for their contribution to a very pleasant and successful afternoon.

Carols On The Green 2020

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.

A reminder that you can donate to the Yorkshire Air Ambulance at the following link: https://www.yorkshireairambulance.org.uk/support-us/donate/ and support this vital asset to our remote community in these stressful times.

A very Happy Christmas to all our readers and best wishes for a peaceful and healthy New Year.

Carols On The Green 2020

The Christmas Tree 2020 – Up She Goes!

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/

All Lit Up

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.

Rosedale Christmas Auction 2020

Sadly but as expected the famous (or should that be infamous!) Christmas auction will not take place this year in the Coach House Inn. Instead there is now a draw where punters can ‘buy’ squares in the Abbey Stores and the Coach House Inn. Proceeds will go towards Rosedale Community School, the church, the Reading Room and Rosedale Football Club.

Details of prizes and the date of the draw will be notified as soon as known. Your support is, as ever, strongly requested

Father Christmas in Rosedale – Update!

Like the rest of us, Father Christmas has been working from home for the last few weeks – however, he and his Lion elves will be out and about before Christmas.

They had planned to visit Rosedale Abbey on Wednesday 9 December, but he has had to change his plans and will now call in to the village on Thursday 17 December at around 4.00pm.

Santa’s 2019 Visit.

Santa and his sleigh will arrive by the school gates opposite Abbey Stores and he looks forward to seeing as many children from the dale that afternoon – see you then!

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!
