A Harvest Thanksgiving Service will be held in St Mary and St Lawrence Church, Rosedale Abbey, on Sunday 6 October at 0915 – all are welcome.
A good turnout of 50 people, both local and visiting, attended a very interesting and entertaining evening presented by Angus Ashworth in St Mary and St Lawrence Church, Rosedale Abbey. Angus talked about his start in the auctioneering business, his recent appearances in the BBC’s Antiques Road Trip programme (a new series is due to be shown shortly) and also discussed various items brought in by members of the audience.
The evening concluded with a quickfire auction of two items donated, an antique map of North Yorkshire which went for £130 and a signed copy of the new Rosedale 2020 Calendar which went for a very creditable £32. In all the evening raised around £700 for the church repair appeal thanks to the generosity of all who attended. Thanks also to all who brought in food for the buffet and who contributed to the wines on offer.
The Rosedale 2020 calendar is now on sale in Abbey Stores and will also be available at the next Coffee Morning (Rosedale History Society) on Saturday 5 October in the Coach House Inn, Rosedale Abbey. Copies cost £10 each in aid of the Save Rosedale Abbey Church Appeal – excellent Christmas presents and very useful at home too!
APPEAL UPDATE: Thanks to recent calendar sales and further donations from the Antiques Evening the Church Appeal now stands at £29,540.
