Just over £180 was raised for the Yorkshire Air Ambulance, for which many thanks to all who contributed so generously.

Thanks also to Diane Crawford for providing the music and the delicious mince pies and to Linda Chambers for the equally tasty mulled cider. See you all next year ‘On The Green’.

xGenerous Rosedale

Two charity events were held at the Coach House Inn this Saturday 3 November 2016. The first was a coffee morning held in aid of the Christmas Lights fund which raised an excellent £250 from donations, direct and for the ever popular raffle.

For the first time in many years the annual Christmas Auction in aid of the Reading Room was held at the Coach House. The inn was packed out for the night and and a boisterous audience bidded enthusiastically for the many items for sale.

And now a message from Lorraine Dale, Chair of the Reading Room Trustees:

The Reading Room Christmas Auction held at the Coach House raised an amazing £1200 – thank you to all who supported this event in any way, you have been so generous.

Special thanks must go to Dave and his staff at the Coach House for their support and use of the premises, and to Dave Seller our famous auctioneer who never disappoints, and my fellow trustees for their help with the event.

THANK YOU ALL

xA Star In Rosedale

Tony Robinson, of Blackadder and Time Team fame, and a film crew were in Rosedale on Monday 5 September, shooting for a series on walks across the UK to be shown later this year on Channel 5. Linda Chambers from the Rosedale History Society was asked to advise Tony of the history of ironstone mining in the dale.

xRosedale Church Coffee Morning

The coffee morning held in the Coach House Inn on Saturday 3 September realised £315.46 for the church roof fund. The church roof is in urgent need of repair and a very considerable sum of money needs to be raised to allow the major work required to be undertaken. Any suggestions for fundraising activities would be very welcome – please contact Anthea Read or any members of the Parochial Church Council.

Meantime, many thanks to Dave Oakey for the use of the Coach House (clearly his luck was in, having won four prizes in the raffle!) and, of course to Margaret and Carol as always for organising and running the ever popular raffle.
