A special treat for that special person!!
Dave Oakey, a long time resident of the village, has taken over from Howard Hebron as landlord of the Coach House Inn in Rosedale Abbey.
Dave training his biceps!
Dave looks forward to welcoming regular and new customers to the Inn. In turn, all of us wish him and his team good luck for the future.
After thirteen years in charge, Howard and Daphne Hebron are saying farewell to the Coach House Inn and downsizing their responsibilities by retiring to their charming cottage in Wrelton.
Howard, Daphne and Family
However, the village will still see a lot of them no doubt as Howard plans to help his son Ben with his ATV business in the yard behind the inn and Daphne promises to spend a lot more time with their grand-children!
All in Rosedale and Hartoft wish Howard and Daphne the very best of good fortune.
After stocktaking on Thursday the Inn reopens under new management on Friday when Dave Oakey would like welcome all Coach House regulars and new visitors.

Actually it is a sculpture titled ‘Seated Figure’ by the artist Sean Henry and thought to be a maquette for a larger bronze statue to be placed on the moors near Castleton.
It can be seen in the bar of the Milburn Arms for a few more days.
The Graze On The Green tea rooms have re-opened for business today, 11 February, under the proprietorship of James Appleton and Darren MacDonald.
James and Darren ready to serve!
James worked at the famous Sharrow Bay Hotel in the Lake District for a number of years and more recently at the Feversham Arms in Helmsley and Darren has experience in the chocolate trade in Liverpool.
Initially, they plan to offer teas and coffee with a range of home made cakes and pastries and light meals between 09.00am to 4.00pm on Monday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday and 10.00 am to 4.00pm on Sunday.
