Father Christmas in Rosedale – 1 December 2021

Posted on . No Comments

Father Christmas is, of course, used to cold weather where he lives at the North Pole, but Rosedale did its best to make him feel at home on a breezy, sleety night with lots of young boys and girls giving him a warm welcome!

The Wonder of Christmas!

Thanks again to Father Christmas and to his elves from the Ryedale Lions for coming to Rosedale and for giving such a great start to the festive season.

ROSEDALE CHRISTMAS AUCTION – 27 NOVEMBER 2021

Posted on . No Comments

In defiance of Storm ARWEN the Christmas auction went ahead in The Coach House Inn on Saturday and even with a reduced attendance over previous years and thanks to the generosity of those who donated items for the auction and those who bid for them, over £2000 was raised for the Reading Room fund.

Thanks also to Sue Foster and Lorraine Dale for organising the event and, as always, to Dave Oakey and the team at the Coach House for hosting it so efficiently.

CHILDREN’S CHRISTMAS PARTY – 4 DECEMBER 2021

Posted on . No Comments

Great news – Father Christmas will be paying a second visit to Rosedale on Saturday 4 December!

All children in the dale are invited to an Xmas Party to meet him between 2.30 to 5pm at the Updale Reading Room. Please let Sam know the numbers and age of children from your family on 01751 417199 or 07786506222 as soon a possible.

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.

Rosedale Church Services

Church Services at Rosedale Church

Sunday December 20th: Morning Prayer at 9.15am.

After the service, the church will remain open for private prayer until 3pm, decorated, warm and lit, with CD carols playing and a church member in attendance.

We hope that people will feel very welcome to visit and, if they wish, to light a candle, perhaps in memory of a loved one they have lost this year or just to bring a gleam of light at this dark time.

Christmas Eve: Holy Communion of the Nativity at 10.00pm.

All are welcome. We are hoping that a mini-choir will be able to sing some carols in the service. There will be mulled wine and minced pies (served safely!) after the service.

Contact Revd David Haddon-Reece, 01751 417401, or Mrs Lorraine Dale, 417448.

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.
