xGenerous Rosedale

Two charity events were held at the Coach House Inn this Saturday 3 November 2016. The first was a coffee morning held in aid of the Christmas Lights fund which raised an excellent £250 from donations, direct and for the ever popular raffle.

For the first time in many years the annual Christmas Auction in aid of the Reading Room was held at the Coach House. The inn was packed out for the night and and a boisterous audience bidded enthusiastically for the many items for sale.

And now a message from Lorraine Dale, Chair of the Reading Room Trustees:

The Reading Room Christmas Auction held at the Coach House raised an amazing £1200 – thank you to all who supported this event in any way, you have been so generous.

Special thanks must go to Dave and his staff at the Coach House for their support and use of the premises, and to Dave Seller our famous auctioneer who never disappoints, and my fellow trustees for their help with the event.

THANK YOU ALL

xFood Bank Shortages Update

From Anthea:

Dear friends of Foodbank,
I understand that UHT Milk, UHT Juices, Rice Pudding and breakfast cereals are again in short supply this month.
It seems that these items appear regularly in the shortages list, and Lesley Hurley wonders if any of you would care to
concentrate your regular donations in one or more of these four areas.
I am anxious to stress that any and all donations are always very gratefully received but it seems that the sustained
provision of these items would be of particular use to Foodbank.
If appropriate, will you please circulate this message.
Thank you so much for your continuing support,
Best wishes,
Mike

xRosedale Show 2015

Well, it turned out nice in the end! A bright if breezy day brought in the crowds to the Milburn Field today, Saturday 15 August, for Rosedale’s annual show, the ‘best little show’ in the county. Numbers of visitors is thought to be slightly up on last year’s attendance at around 3,750. However, there were fewer trade stands, but there were plenty of the ones that mattered!

A few souvenirs of the day:
