Oh, Come all Ye Faithful! – in 2017

Please note the event for your diaries and pass the time and date around your friends. This is an important charity for us here in the dale and the Air Ambulance needs our best support.

CHRISTMAS AUCTION – 24 NOVEMBER 2018

The famous Rosedale Christmas Auction in aid of the Updale Reading Room/Village Hall will be held in the Coach House Inn on Saturday 24 November 2018 starting at 8.30pm sharp. The Coach House will be open for donations of auction items from 6.00pm.

Bidding well under way at the 2017 auction

All are very welcome to join us on this fun evening, when you can top up on your Christmas presents and contribute to local charitable causes by competing to pay outrageous prices for bottles of pickled onions, for example!

Carols On The Green – 20 December 2017

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 in Rosedale – 4 December 2017
