Article from the Burnley Express 21st January 2012
“The next day saw us doing the circuit of Spaunton Moor near Rosedale Abbey. Start on Chimney Bank and take a clockwise route along the moor edge on clear tracks. This is my favourite landscape. Stark, bleak, lonely moors with heather running to the horizon and a big sky. Classic North York Moors. We called in at the Blacksmiths in Lastingham when halfway round for a brief stop. I felt deeply ashamed not to pay due respect to the marvellous real ales on offer, but I maintained an iron resolve and returned to the moor still hungry and thirsty.
But while the Moors are fairly barren places and not over sustaining, they always raise my spirits and give me a great sense of well-being. Under a darkening sky I watched the gamekeepers’ fires on a distant moor as I sat, with Monty at my side, on the lonely old base of the ancient Ana Cross, one of dozens of such structures that give the area such character. All so calm and very peaceful. I love it here. It may be true that man shall not live by bread alone, but as I scanned the distant horizons of this beautiful country in which I am so lucky to live, I couldn’t help wondering, “I wonder what is for dinner tonight”?

Bernard Martin and the Rosedale Swing Band are in action at the Abbey Stores this Christmas Eve between 12 noon and 2pm. Anne’s delicious mince pies, Christmas shortbread biscuits and mulled wine and coffee are on offer too!
The traditional Christmas auction in aid of the Martin House hospice and the Updale Reading Room was held at the White Horse Farm Inn on Saturday night, 3 December. The festivities were started with the singing of a carol, The First Noell, then the inimitable Dave Seller auctioned off a multitude of items ranging from a special York edition of Monopoly to jars of pickled onions. The auction raised over £1000 – the final figure is as fuzzy as the head of the treasurers at the time of writing – which will be split equally between the Martin House hospice and the Updale Reading Room.
Thanks to Christine and Jim at the White Horse, to all those who helped run the auction so smoothly and to all those who contributed items for the sale and made the evening such a success. Afternote: the final sum collected appears to have been £1,023 – a magnificent effort and credit to everyone involved.
A wonderful event organised by Sue Procter in aid of Stepping Stones Orphanage, India.
Teas & Cake were excellent, served on fine china with beautiful tea pots, a band played in the corner and there were more crafts than you could shake a stick at made by Sue and the School Children of Rosedale. Attendance was amazing with what appeared to be more people in the Reading Room than humanly possible !
Sue Says, “Can’t thank everyone enough for your support on Sunday, I can’t believe what a huge success it was, and what a wonderful time people were having.
I truly believe we have an amazing community in Rosedale and we must appreciate each other..”
The grand total raised on the day was £493.57 In aid of Stepping Stones Orphanage in India, with the final total from other donations and Sue’s treatments bringing the amount for the children to over £800.
Its a tidy sum that will make a positive difference to the lives of these children.
