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.
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.
A preview evening was held for the Flower Festival on Friday 14 September 2018 in aid of the Save Rosedale Abbey Church Appeal. Close to a hundred people, visitors and locals, attended and enjoyed a very convivial event and were royally entertained by the Eskuleles ukelele band.
Over £600 pounds was raised from donations and sales of Appeal related merchandise, an excellent effort by all involved. Thanks go to all who helped set up the the displays and who who contributed to the Appeal on the evening.
Please remember the church will be open to view the wonderful displays by local groups from 10.00am to 5.00pm each day through to Sunday 23 September, with the Harvest Service followed by a Bring-and-Share supper on Saturday 22 September starting at 6.00pm. All are very welcome to St Mary and St Lawrence Church.
The ever popular Carols On The Green will take place on Wednesday 21 December 2016 starting at 6.30pm with song sheets, mulled cider and mince pies provided.
A collection will be taken in aid of the Yorkshire Air Ambulance, so wrap up well, bring a torch and enjoy the seasonal sing song in aid of a very worthy cause.
A brass band called the Sandhouse Stompers are walking the 120 miles from Morecombe to Whitby from 20 to 28 July. On the way they are stopping off to play free gigs to raise money for Favela Brass, a project which provides brass and percussion instruments and English lessons for children in one of the favelas in Rio de Janiero.
Last year’s walk raised over £4000 enabling the project to continue for another year and also to the children being invited to perform at the Rio Olympics!
The band will be playing on Wednesday night, 27 July, at the Coach House, Rosedale Abbey starting at around 8.30pm – call in, enjoy the lively music and contribute to a worthy cause.
Follow-on: a great night was had in the Coach House and the audience was very generous with their contributions to the charity, helping the Stompers to raise about £3000 so far on their trek and making the target of £4000 plus achievable after their final gig in Whitby at the Abbey Wharf on Thursday evening.
Around fifty people, locals and visitors, gathered on the village green to sing carols lustily, fuelled by some delicious mulled cider and mince pies provided by Linda Chambers and Diane Crawford.
Thanks to the generosity of all the carollers £120 was raised for the Yorkshire Air Ambulance.
The 150th anniversary of the wonderful little chapel at Hartoft was celebrated on Sunday 30 August with a musical tea. Forty four people from all over the dale attended and £315 was raised which will go towards replacing one or more of the chapel windows.
Lynda would like too thanks all who came and supported the chapel restoration fund for their ‘fantastic generosity’.
A note for your diaries – the famous George Colley Singers, who have sung in Rosedale church twice before, will be performing their lively repertoire again on Friday 3 July at 7.00pm in St Mary and St Lawrence Church, Rosedale Abbey.
Tickets will be £7 at the door and will include a glass of wine and a light supper. Come and listen to excellent live music and song and enjoy a convivial evening.
So y’all know, the Folk night on Friday 10 October was much enjoyed by all and raised £411.60 for the Reading Room, an excellent result.
Thanks to Lorrie Westwood for organising the evening and to all who contributed so well in support of the Reading Room.
