Twenty intrepid carollers sang all the old favourites by the village Christmas Tree on a drizzly Saturday evening, fortified by quantities of mulled wine and mince pies.
Don’t forget there is the traditional Midnight Service in the Church of St Mary and St Laurence on Christmas Eve starting at 11.30pm.
A film crew were operating in the churchyard on Saturday. Apparently our church was substituting for Selby Abbey. No other detail as everything was supposed to be hush-hush, so if anyone else has got information please comment below!
For those in the village who may have wondered what all the noise was in the graveyard today, the NYMNP conservation volunteers were carrying out the annual clearance of the conservation section of the site in preparation for the re-sowing of wild flowers.
For anyone interested in joining in the valuable work of the National Park conservation volunteers please contact Jo Leckenby, Volunteer Service Assistant on 01439 770657 or email@example.com
Two very well known harpists gave an excellent concert in St Mary and St Lawrence Church on Friday 17 August, the eve of the Rosedale Show. In the first half, Fiona Katie Roberts played exciting, rhythmical African and Arabic inspired pieces, manly composed by her husband David, on her unique quadruple harp. For more information see www.tripleharps.com
In the second half Mark Harmer, the most ‘visited’ harpist on the internet, played a selection of traditional Welsh and Swedish pieces, two modern Italian compostitions and ended with four pieces by the legendary Irish harpist Thurlough O’Carolan. See Mark on www.youtube.com/markharmer
Also many thanks to Penny Leask and Anthea Reid for organising the excellent refreshments enjoyed by an appreciative audience at the interval. A great start to the Show!
Unlike the river pageant in London yesterday, Rosedale Abbey was blessed with wonderful sunny weather for our festivities at the Turret Field on Monday 4 June to mark HM The Queen’s Diamond Jubilee. There was a scarecrow competition, bouncy castle along with tea, plants, tombola and cake stalls as well as face painting and biscuit decoration stands along with the usual raffle and all organised with excellent efficiency by Kath Wallace and Nicola Johnson and their team. The Rosedale History Society had an extensive exhibition in the church and the good weather also brought out the crowds of visitors from the the caravan and camp sites as well as day trippers using the Moorbus service.
Four new trees, a yew, silver birch, rowan and a holly are being planted in the Rosedale Abbey church yard to replace two other trees that were cut down some years before.
For visitors to this site from outside the dale, we’ve had our first proper frost of the winter. Showing the St Mary and St Lawrence churchyard with the war memorial centre right.
