Rosedale and Hartoft Support Group Update

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.

VE Day – 8 May 2020

The nationwide celebrations over the weekend 8 to 10 May to commemorate the 75th anniversary of Victory in Europe Day have obviously been severely curtailed because of the Wuhan Virus pandemic.

However, we can all make an effort to unpack the bunting and fly the flag from our homes on Friday 8 May. Also, Charlotte Tomlin, currently residing at 20 Bridgefoot and who plays in brass bands and orchestras, will sound the Last Post and Reveille at the War Memorial in Rosedale Abbey on Friday at 2.55pm. Clearly, rules on social gatherings must apply but it is suggested that people in the village and dale might like to stand in their doorways at that time and raise a toast in memory of all who suffered and died in the Second World War and especially the three men of the dale who fell and the other 32 who served in that conflict.

We Will Remember Them

Rosedale Show 2020

With great regret, the Rosedale Show Committee has announced that the Show has been cancelled for this year. There were just too many forward financial commitments to be made now which could be put at risk later if any Wuhan Flu measures are still in place in August, as now seems likely from government forecasts.

Heavy Horses from 2019

Fingers crossed and see you all in 2021!
