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.

CHURCH APPEAL CONCERT – 29 OCTOBER 2021

Posted on . No Comments

The Moorland Voices choir, directed by Clare Haynes, gave an excellent concert in St Mary and St Lawrence Church in Rosedale Abbey on Friday night. An appreciative audience was entertained with a wide programme of folk, gospel and jazz numbers, both choral and instrumental, which raised £700 pounds for the church appeal fund from ticket sales, donations and the auction of a watercolour picture of Rosedale.

Moorland Voices on song!

Our thanks go again to Clare Haynes and the choir and to the volunteers who set up the event and provided the delicious snacks and wines which contributed to a most enjoyable evening.

PAINTING FOR AUCTION

A chance to win a striking original artwork of Rosedale!

If you would like to make an offer by sealed bid, please drop your bid price, your name and email/phone number off at The Oaks or Phoenix House, both on Gill Lane or at Thorgill House.  The painting has a reserve of £140.00. 

The result of the auction will be made at the Moorland Voices choral concert in the church this Friday, 29th October.  If you are at the concert, sealed bids can be taken on the night.

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

The Queen’s Trumpet Maker – 14 October 2019

As part of the 80th anniversary celebrations of Rosedale’s Women’s Institute, Dr Richard Smith, of Smith Watkins of Sheriff Hutton, gave an illustrated talk in the Updale Reading Room on Monday evening on the history of the ceremonial trumpet, how his firm makes them and how they are played at State ceremonial occasions.

Lorrie Westwood introducing Richard and Debbie Smith.
A practical, and loud, demonstration from Dr Smith!

Some forty members from Rosedale and neighbouring Women’s Institute branches thoroughly enjoyed Richard Smith’s fascinating and amusing presentation and the lively question and answer session that followed.

And thanks, of course, to all who contributed to the delicious supper afterwards.
