The Annual Parochial Meeting will take place in St Mary and St Lawrence Church on Wednesday 25 May at 7.00pm – all are most welcome to attend.
This coming weekend we will be having a coffee morning in the Coach House on Saturday, 4 December, 10.00-12.00. There will be the usual raffle and cake sales, and donations for either or both will be gratefully accepted.
On the following day, Sunday 5th, between 2.00-4.00pm., we will be having our first Tea and Chat meeting back in the Updale Reading Room in almost two years. We look forward to seeing some familiar faces and also welcome new ones to our very informal get-togethers. Could those who would like to come along please bring a mask and respect social distancing. Refreshments will be available.
Please note, future meetings are going to be quarterly, not monthly. Our meetings for 2022 will be held on the first Sunday in March, June, September and December.
Our much loved coffee mornings are starting again at last on Saturday 2 October in the Coach House Inn, Rosedale Abbey, from 10.00 until 12.00 and in aid of Community Village in Bloom.
The usual cake sale and ever popular raffle will also take place and the the new Rosedale Calendar for 2022 will be available at £10 per copy in aid of the Rosedale church appeal.
Hoping to see you all there on Saturday at 10.00am
- In view of the virulence of the pandemic and following Government advice, Rosedale PCC has voted to close the church for public worship for the time being. This includes opening the church for private prayer.
- Irrespective of how well we can assess and manage the risk in church, it seems entirely wrong to invite people to leave their homes to get to church when the Government’s advice is so strongly to Stay at Home.
Because we are all having to change our plans due to the virus threat, we will be holding no further monthly meetings or other events for the next few months.
If anyone wants archive information, please email us at any time at
We hope that everyone manages to stay well until we can all get together again.
The last tea and chat meeting of the Society for 2019 was held on Sunday 1 December in the Updale Reading Room, when the members made a presentation to Carol Cockerill and Margaret Truran to thank them for their hard work in support of the Society throughout the year and the wonderful tea and cakes which make each meeting such a treat.
Just a reminder that the meetings of the RHS are held on the first Sunday of each month from 2.00 to 4.00pm. Entry is free and there is a wealth of archive material and internet access available on the social, family and industrial of Rosedale – so why not come along on Sunday 5 January 2019 for a warm welcome, great chat and excellent tea and cakes!
The Rosedale branch of the Women’s Institute celebrated its 80 anniversary – it was formed on 6 July 1939 – with a guest tea in the Updale Reading Room on Monday 10 June 2019.
Representatives of LEACH, the Huddersfield based graphics consultants met with Linda Chambers, Land of Iron Steering Group member and Elspeth Ingleby from the Land of Iron project team in Rosedale Abbey on Tuesday 24 July to discuss progress on the designs and placement of information panels forming the Rosedale Hub.
The History Society has now been tasked with providing detailed information on Rosedale’s industrial heritage sites for inclusion on the displays around the dale. Currently, it is hoped that these will be in place by next Spring to greatly improve visitor information and updates on progress will be given here.
A public consultation on the proposed conservation measures on Rosedale’s ironstone roasting kilns was held last night, 12 December, in the Coach House Inn. The session was very well attended by 28 local people and there was lively discussion on several topics after stimulating presentations by representatives from the project office and the archaeological and engineering agencies involved with the proposed works.
