- In view of the virulence of the pandemic and following Government advice, Rosedale PCC has voted to close the church for public worship for the time being. This includes opening the church for private prayer.
- Irrespective of how well we can assess and manage the risk in church, it seems entirely wrong to invite people to leave their homes to get to church when the Government’s advice is so strongly to Stay at Home.

This year and in lieu of the usual carols on the green with mulled cider and mince pies held in aid of the Yorkshire Air Ambulance, Charlotte Tomlin played a medley of Christmas tunes on a wintery Christmas Eve to a small but appreciative audience in the village.
A reminder that you can donate to the Yorkshire Air Ambulance at the following link: https://www.yorkshireairambulance.org.uk/support-us/donate/ and support this vital asset to our remote community in these stressful times.
A very Happy Christmas to all our readers and best wishes for a peaceful and healthy New Year.
Sadly, there will be no ‘Carols on The Green’ by the Christmas Tree this year. We send all donations raised to the Yorkshire Air Ambulance and this year would ask that you continue to support this vital emergency service by making contributions either in local collecting boxes or online or by cheque – details of how to donate are at https://www.yorkshireairambulance.org.uk/support-us/donate/
We hope to see you all next year, to enjoy hot mulled cider and mince pies while singing along to our favourite carols around the village Christmas Tree. In the meantime stay safe and well and have a great Christmas.

The Rosedale and Hartoft Support group has created a collection point in the village for Ryedale Foodbank. A horsebox has been kindly provided by Pam and Dave Seller on Milk Lane. Any spare tinned goods, cereals, UHT milk, jam and preserves, toiletries and cleaning products can be placed in the box provided and it will be picked up and distributed to those in need in the local area. Further information can be obtained from www.ryedale.foodbank.org.uk
There is also a “Send a Smile” box into which anyone can put a little greeting, drawing, card etc. These would then be included in any deliveries within our area or posted through local doors just to remind people that we all care.
We have also included a general book swap box and provided some posters to colour in which are a part of the campaign to thank our local posties. A bit of mindful activity for you and the children.
