Rosedale Abbey and Hartoft Support Group

We have joined together to form a support group for Rosedale Abbey and Hartoft during these difficult times. We are hoping to be of help to those of you who are shielding, in the vulnerable or self isolating group or indeed anyone who is not able to venture out at the moment.

We are offering to pick up and deliver groceries, collect prescriptions, source essentials and pet food etc. Please ask and we will endeavour to help or maybe you would just like us to check in and chat.

Shirley: 01751 417384 or 07508772787

Olivia:   07904201255

Please get in touch and pass these numbers on to anyone you think may need them. If you are isolating it may be helpful to give these contacts to your relatives/ friends who can then contact us on your behalf if needed.

We can also be found on facebook: Rosedale Abbey and Hartoft Support Group

They would also like to thank all who helped to raise £406 at yesterday’s bingo night in aid of Hospice UK and also those who contributed in other events which have now brought in a total of over £5,500 for the charity – a magnificent effort all round.

The Queen’s Trumpet Maker – 14 October 2019

As part of the 80th anniversary celebrations of Rosedale’s Women’s Institute, Dr Richard Smith, of Smith Watkins of Sheriff Hutton, gave an illustrated talk in the Updale Reading Room on Monday evening on the history of the ceremonial trumpet, how his firm makes them and how they are played at State ceremonial occasions.

A practical, and loud, demonstration from Dr Smith!

Some forty members from Rosedale and neighbouring Women’s Institute branches thoroughly enjoyed Richard Smith’s fascinating and amusing presentation and the lively question and answer session that followed.

And thanks, of course, to all who contributed to the delicious supper afterwards.
