Rosedale Abbey and Hartoft Support Group

We have joined together to form a support group for Rosedale Abbey and Hartoft during these difficult times. We are hoping to be of help to those of you who are shielding, in the vulnerable or self isolating group or indeed anyone who is not able to venture out at the moment.

We are offering to pick up and deliver groceries, collect prescriptions, source essentials and pet food etc. Please ask and we will endeavour to help or maybe you would just like us to check in and chat.

Shirley: 01751 417384 or 07508772787

Olivia:   07904201255

Please get in touch and pass these numbers on to anyone you think may need them. If you are isolating it may be helpful to give these contacts to your relatives/ friends who can then contact us on your behalf if needed.

Winter heliotrope

 This plant is welcome colour during the winter months and certainly one of a very few that flowers at this time.  Flowering from December through until March it is in full flow now.  It is more common nearer the coast but grows in a few places in the National Park.  We have two sites here in Rosedale, the roadside verge opposite the north entrance to the church in the village and the lay-by between the Orange Tree and Brick cottage on Daleside Road in Rosedale East.  Also known as fragrant butterbur it has a distinct smell of vanilla.  It’s large round leaves are easy to spot but look closely for the pinkish white flowers.  A real treat before spring.  Updale Natural History Recorder
