Rosedale show – Saturday 17 August 2019

There was solid rain for the whole of the day before the show so there was much apprehension about access to the show field on the day itself. However, after a slow and slippery start, the sun came out, the ground dried up quickly and the crowds turned up to make the day a great success. Some images as a reminder of the day:

English Toy Terriers – now a rare breed.
A competitor in the Retrained Racehorse Class
Herding sheep into the show pens
Thewell has a lot to answer for! One of children’s pony classes
Guinea Pig Judging
A surprise from the Yorkshire Air Ambulance!
The ever popular heavy horse class.
Children’s Sports – Coach and Horses Racing
The start of one of the hound trails.
Finding Unicorns – the fancy dress pony class with this year’s Presidents of the Show, Mr and Mrs Farrow.
The Church Tea Tent raised £2,350 , the best ever, so thanks to Anthea Read and her team of helpers and bakers

A huge vote of thanks to Sam Dring and her Show Committee and to all the volunteers who set up the show field and to the stewards and other helpers on the day – it could not happen without your dedication to making the Show such a success.

The Blacksmiths Country Inn at Hartoft

There have been lots of rumours flying around about the Blacksmiths at Hartoft. The situation is that Paul and Scott McNicoll-Cheong have taken out a lease on the property and have started the refurbishment process,  concentrating of sorting out the rooms and recruiting staff, with the intention of starting trading again in mid to late July this year. They intend to run it as a country inn with high quality, locally sourced food and comfortable high grade rooms.

Paul has 20 years experience over a broad spectrum of the hospitality industry and Scott currently runs a hair salon in Glasgow. Initially, Paul will remain on site overseeing the sorting-out of the inn while Scott stays in Glasgow with their two children, aged three and seven, until the end of the school term. Then he will move to Hartoft and the two youngsters will be enrolled in the Rosedale Community School. More detail will be published here as it comes in.

It is good to see the Blacksmiths back on the road to recovery and we wish Paul and Scott the very best in their endeavours.
