The annual show (every August) is run by the Agricultural, Horticultural and Industrial Society. This year will include Cattle, Goats, Heavy Horses, Ponies, jumping, local produce, Rabbits, Vintage Tractors & Scarecrows and much more. More details to follow soon on the Rosedale Show’s website.
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.
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.
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/
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.
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
The ever popular Carols On The Green, in aid of the Yorkshire Air Ambulance, took place on the village green on Monday 23 December at 6.30pm when a crowd of over fifty happy revellers enjoyed mulled cider and mince pies to accompany some lusty carol singing!
Over £250 was collected for the Yorkshire Air Ambulance on the night, so heartfelt thanks to all who donated and to Adrian and Diane Crawford and Linda Chambers for the musical accompaniment, mince pies and mulled cider, an appropriate start to a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
Rosedale’s traditional Christmas Auction in aid of the Reading Room/Village Hall was held at the Coach House Inn on Saturday night. After much mirth and merriment and plenty of Christmas spirit, the wonderful sum of £1600 was raised to support the running and maintenance of the building for another year.
As ever, many thanks go to Dave Oakey and the Coach House team for their cheerful and professional service throughout the hectic evening and to Dave Seller and his assistants for auctioning of the huge number of lots so efficiently – a memorable night in Rosedale and a great start to the Festive Season.
