The next coffee morning in the Coach House Inn on Saturday 3 March 2018 from 10.00 to 12.00 am will be in aid of Yorkshire Cancer Research.
All are welcome to come and support this very important charity – donations of raffle prizes, cakes for sale would be also be very welcome.
Look forward to seeing you at the Coach House next Saturday.
The coffee morning at the Coach House raised £341 in aid of the Mary’s Meals charity which aims to provide a daily meal in a place of education for more than one million of the world’s poorest children.
Good Coffee, Tasty Cakes and Plenty of Chat!
Thanks to all who helped run the event from Penelope Dawson-Brown, the coordinator, and to all who contributed a wide array of raffle prizes.
The next coffee morning on Saturday 3 March will be in aid of Yorkshire Cancer Research – look out for more details nearer the time.
Many thanks to all who supported the race night at the Coach House. We raised an amazing £523 for the Reading Room / village hall fund.
Thanks must go to Dave Oakey, Jimmy Porter and Sue Foster for arranging the evening, June Scarth for the raffle and Pam Seller for running the tote.
The Reading room has constant running repairs and needs updating on the heating system. THANK YOU for all your support.
The coffee morning held in the Coach House Inn on Saturday 6 January was in aid of the Rosedale Football Team funds.
Margaret, Carol and Janet getting ready for the raffle.
The raffle and coffee sales raised £260 to help with the costs of running the team and for the provision of balls, goal nets and other such items.
Thanks to all who contributed by donating prizes, buying tickets, those who helped out with the raffle and to Dave Oakey and the team at the Coach House for their hospitality.
On a dank evening, over fifty people from the dale and visitors sang carols on the village green with varying degrees of lustiness, the volume increasing noticeably with the consumption of some excellent mulled cider and mince pies!
Oh, Come all Ye Faithful!
As a result, £270 was collected (including £50 from a whip round of the customers in Abbey Stores) for the Yorkshire Air Ambulance, a very worthy cause as there were several visits to Rosedale by the distinctive yellow helicopters of the service in 2017.
Thanks to all who contributed so generously and to Adrian and Diane Crawford for again leading the singing so ably. The same again next year?
Father Christmas visited Rosedale Abbey this evening, delighting young and old in his brightly colored sleigh, with Santa’s helpers from the Ryedale Lions collecting for local good causes.

We wish Father Christmas well on his busy rounds of local villages and towns and look forward to seeing him again next year.
The annual general meeting of the Rosedale History Society will be held in the Updale Reading Room, Rosedale, at 4.45pm, immediately after the usual Tea and Chat meeting.
The annual Christmas Fair in aid of the Rosedale Community School was held in the school hall on Thursday 23 November. In a very festive atmosphere, just over £570 was raised to support school activities, an excellent effort all round:
“Can I have a ride-on mower, please Santa?”
Busy with stalls and activities
Thanks to all the stall holders and to those who donated prizes for the raffle and who ran activities to entertain the children. And off course, to Santa for turning up and dishing out presents!
And a reminder that Father Christmas will be revisiting the dale on 4 December at 4.40pm, parking up by the school gates, so come along and give him a warm Rosedale welcome.
