Both days of the Local Villages WW1 history exhibition were well attended at the Updale Reading Room, Rosedale. Between 50 to 60 people on Saturday and rather more on Sunday visited from all over the country, not just locally and viewed a fascinating and varied set of photographs, memorabilia and documentation on the roles played by by local people in the Great War both at home and at the front from Rosedale and Hartoft, Appleton le Moors, Sinnington, Lockton and Levisham and Thornton le Dale.

A tremendous amount of hard work was put in to stage the exhibition by volunteers from all the villages involved. The organisers would also like to thank all those who helped out on both days with running the reception desk, guiding and advising our visitors, those who provided and served all the delicious cakes, rolls and other refreshments that are such a feature of these events in the Updale Reading Room and, finally, the generous donors of excellent raffle prizes on both days – you know who you are so thanks again!
The coffee morning in aid of the Hartoft Chapel raised £250.10 – well done to all who contributed to this worthy cause.
Lots of Chat Going On

The above is a quote from a Berkshire couple who visited the Rosedale and Hartoft Treasured Textiles Exhibition on Bank Holiday Monday. Around 180 other people from the dale and beyond called into the Updale Reading Room over the weekend to enjoy the display of textiles with a Rosedale connection, put on by local effort and with the support of Ryedale District Council’s Small Scale Creative Economy Scheme.
