Welcome to the Rosedale blog. This is where we share news and information about events in Rosedale and the wider community throughout the year. You’ll also find news about the village timetable, our micro enterprises, school events, clubs, and lively socials.
The Make, Bake and Grow Show and the Sheep Show were held on the Turret Field, in the church and on the Milburn Field on Saturday afternoon, 20 August 2022. Blessed by warm weather, all parts of the event turned out to be very well attended by local folk and visitors alike.
The church element is expected to make a substantial sum for the church repair fund (Afternote: £848.00 was raised, an excellent result ).
The Bake, Make and Grow organising group would like to thank everyone who helped at or attended their event held in the Turret field on Saturday 20th August.
The amazing support from both the local community and visitors helped to make the day a wonderful success.
After paying expenses, monies raised will be donated to the Reading Room, the school, the church, the community fund and to mountain rescue.
Heartfelt thanks to all who organised, helped out and donated to this very successful event. With luck and a strong community effort it is hoped that there will be a full Rosedale Show again in 2023.
A number of events around the dale are taking place to celebrate HM The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee.

Some images from the celebrations in the dale are below:
The excellent concert on 9 June in the church was a fitting finale to a very successful Platinum Jubilee week in Rosedale. Congratulations and thanks to all who organised the many events and to all the volunteers who helped run them so well. Many visitors commented on on the bright and friendly atmosphere in the village throughout the period and Rosedale can be proud of its tribute to HM The Queen and its efforts in raising much needed funds for the church’s restoration. The Church Treasurer is now drawing breath and will publish the financial results shortly. Remember, you can continue giving at any time to this vital effort, either in the boxes in the church itself or by BACS to Save Rosedale Abbey Church at Virgin Money account number 35397892, sort code 05-05-70
Afternote: the final amount for the church appeal raised after costs is a magnificent £4,530! Again, well done to all involved.
It’s that time again – the splendid Rosedale Calendar for 2022 in aid of the Save Rosedale Church Appeal is now out and available from Abbey Stores, Graze on The Green and Gillies Jones Glass Studio for £10 a copy, or from firstname.lastname@example.org for £12 with post and packaging included.
These make ideal Christmas presents so buy one for the house and another one or two to send to family and friends elsewhere to remind them of lovely Rosedale!
All funds raised go to support this vital project, where another £80,000 is needed to restore and preserve our church for future generations.

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!
