ROSEDALE MAKE, BAKE AND GROW SHOW PLUS SHEEP!
The Make, Bake and Grow Show and the Sheep Show were held on the Turret Field, in the church and on the Milburn Field on Saturday afternoon, 20 August 2022. Blessed by warm weather, all parts of the event turned out to be very well attended by local folk and visitors alike.
The church element is expected to make a substantial sum for the church repair fund (Afternote: £848.00 was raised, an excellent result ).
The Bake, Make and Grow organising group would like to thank everyone who helped at or attended their event held in the Turret field on Saturday 20th August.
The amazing support from both the local community and visitors helped to make the day a wonderful success.
After paying expenses, monies raised will be donated to the Reading Room, the school, the church, the community fund and to mountain rescue.
Heartfelt thanks to all who organised, helped out and donated to this very successful event. With luck and a strong community effort it is hoped that there will be a full Rosedale Show again in 2023.

ROSEDALE JUBILEE CELEBRATIONS 1-9 JUNE 22
A number of events around the dale are taking place to celebrate HM The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee. Most of the events are in aid of the Save Rosedale Abbey Church Appeal and you can contribute directly during the week at the events or by BACS payment to Save Rosedale Abbey Church, account no 35397892, sort code 05-05-70 at Virgin Money.
Some images from the celebrations in the dale are below:
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.
ROSEDALE ARTS AND CRAFT FESTIVAL
Note for your diaries please – further details will be published shortly.
Rosedale Abbey Church Fete – 15 August 2021
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.
Fingers crossed and see you all in 2021!
Rosedale History Society Meetings
The last tea and chat meeting of the Society for 2019 was held on Sunday 1 December in the Updale Reading Room, when the members made a presentation to Carol Cockerill and Margaret Truran to thank them for their hard work in support of the Society throughout the year and the wonderful tea and cakes which make each meeting such a treat.
Just a reminder that the meetings of the RHS are held on the first Sunday of each month from 2.00 to 4.00pm. Entry is free and there is a wealth of archive material and internet access available on the social, family and industrial of Rosedale – so why not come along on Sunday 5 January 2019 for a warm welcome, great chat and excellent tea and cakes!
