Rosedale History Society Coffee Morning – 7 October 2017

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.

Carols On The Green – Wednesday 21 December

Generous Rosedale

Two charity events were held at the Coach House Inn this Saturday 3 November 2016. The first was a coffee morning held in aid of the Christmas Lights fund which raised an excellent £250 from donations, direct and for the ever popular raffle.

For the first time in many years the annual Christmas Auction in aid of the Reading Room was held at the Coach House. The inn was packed out for the night and and a boisterous audience bidded enthusiastically for the many items for sale.

Special thanks must go to Dave and his staff at the Coach House for their support and use of the premises, and to Dave Seller our famous auctioneer who never disappoints, and my fellow trustees for their help with the event.

First Frost On Chimney Bank

… and the first major incident of the winter when the Arla milk tanker skidded on ice and failed to make the first hairpin bend at the bottom of Chimney Bank. Fortunately the tanker was empty otherwise it could have ended up in one of the pony paddocks on Daleside Road.

Recovery under way. Lesson: don't ignore the signs!

Recovery under way. Lesson: don’t ignore the signs!

It is said the the driver handed in his notice immediately afterwards!

 

Afternote: the tanker driver is called Mac Wheeldon and recently e-mailed to say “I will be taking my wife out to see the spot I almost lost my life! Also to see the stunning area you live.” Look forward to seeing you here, Mac.
