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.
COACH HOUSE INN COFFEE MORNING. The next coffee morning, at The Coach House on Saturday 2nd December, 10.00-12.00, is in aid of the National Rheumatoid Arthritis Society (NRAS) with raffle and cakes. Held in memory of two much missed Rosedale residents, Linda and Ann, who have died of this incurable condition in the past 12 months.
ROSEDALE HISTORY MEETING Our March meeting takes place on Sunday, 3rd December between 2.00 – 4.00pm at the usual venue of the Updale Reading Room/ Village Hall Internet access is available and tea and cake will be on offer, as usual.
As has become a tradition in Rosedale, the auction in aid of the Rosedale Reading Room/Village Hall was a noisy, crowded and joyful occasion which raised around £3,500 thanks to the outstanding generosity of the donors of auction lots and the uninhibited, highly competitive bidding of those in the audience!
As always huge thanks to Dave Oakey and the team at the Coach House for coping with the onslaught, and to Sue Foster and the auction helpers for an outstanding evening – a great start to Christmas.
The Carols on The Green event on 23 December 2022 raised £280 and the recent Coffee Morning in the Coach House collected £216 making a total of £496 donated to the Air Ambulance from the people of Rosedale and Hartoft over this Christmas and New Year – well done all!
It takes £19,000 a day to operate both YAA helicopters so all donations are vital to keep this essential service in the air.
Because of the forecast for heavy rain on Friday evening, 23 December, the Carols On The Green event in aid of the Yorkshire Air Ambulance was held in Rosedale Abbey’s church instead. Around 68 locals and visitors joined in singing all the Christmas favourites lustily, helped by the mulled cider and mince pies!
A collection was taken for the Yorkshire Air Ambulance which raised the excellent sum of £280, so thanks to all who came for their generosity. Thanks also to Linda Chambers and Lorraine Dale for setting up the event, for the mulled cider and the mince pies and coping with the last minute change of location.
Just a reminder that the Coffee Morning in the Coach House on 7 January 2023 from 10.00 to 12.00 am will also be in aid of the Air Ambulance – see you all there.
A reminder that ‘Carols on The Green’, in aid of The Yorkshire Air Ambulance, will take place by Abbey Stores on Friday 23 December at 6.30pm and a Service of Holy Communion will be held in St Mary and St Lawrence Church, Rosedale Abbey on Saturday 24 December at 10.00pm. All are most welcome.
The well loved Carols on The Green event in aid of The Yorkshire Air Ambulance is back and we look forward to seeing you all on Friday 23 December outside Abbey Stores for delicious mulled cider, mince pies and a hearty sing-song.
Remember to wrap up warm, bring a torch and, we would suggest, an umbrella!
