xRosedale History Society Coffee Morning – 1 October 2016

The Rosedale History Society sponsored a most successful coffee morning in the Coach House Inn on Saturday 1 October. There was a great turnout, including several visitors who wandered in by accident and then stayed to look around and take part in the raffle! A total of £305.80 was raised through donations, cake sales and the raffle.
