The annual Christmas Auction took place in a packed out Coach House Inn in Rosedale Abbey on Saturday night and raised the magnificent sum of £2,110 for the Rosedale Village Hall/Reading Room. The 2021 figure was £1,756 so well done to everyone involved.
Heartfelt thanks to all who donated items so generously, and to Lorraine and Trevor Dale, Sue Foster, Lorrie Westwood and Dave Seller for setting up and conducting the auction with such good humour. Also many thanks to Dave Oakey and his Coach House team for their efficiency and patience throughout the very busy evening.
We have had advanced notice from Santa’s PR staff in the Ryedale Lions that he will be visiting Rosedale Abbey again this year and landing in his sleigh near the school gates on Wednesday 14 December at around 4.30pm.
AND PLEASE REMEMBER THIS WILL BE THE LAST OPPORTUNITY TO BUY THE GREAT ROSEDALE 2023 CALENDAR AT £10 A COPY IN AID OF THE SAVE ROSEDLE CHURCH APPEAL!
Wishing all a very Happy Christmas and a safe and healthy New Year.
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!
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.
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.
