Some twenty five people from around the dale attended a simple, socially distanced Act of Remembrance at the war memorial in Rosedale Abbey churchyard on Sunday 8 November 2020.
After prayers, the names of Rosedale’s Fallen in the Great War, the Second World War and the Korean War were read out, The Last Post and Reveille were sounded and wreaths laid on behalf of the Church, the Parish Council and The Women’s Institute.
Permission has finally been given to hold a Harvest Festival service in St May and St Lawrence Church, Rosedale Abbey on Thursday 22 October at 7.00pm. All are most welcome to come and celebrate the bounty of nature and give thanks in this most difficult of times.
The funeral ceremony for John Dent, 1943 – 2020, was held in Rosedale Abbey today, Monday 20 July at 2.00pm. The service was conducted by Father Bill Godfrey. Over 200 hundred local people and others in the shooting and hunting world attended to remember the life of an outstanding countryman, soldier and Rosedale character:
Having drunk the last pints in the Coach House Inn, Rosedale Abbey, at lockdown in March, Dave Oakey and friends celebrated with the first pints on re-opening the pub in Saturday 4 July. The toast was to another regular, John Dent of blessed memory.
The Coach House is now officially open for business with table service only for food and drinks. Customers are asked to be patient and show understanding with the temporary limitations required by law.
A socially distanced crowd of Rosedale residents attended a short commemoration of the end of the Second World War in Europe, at the war memorial in Rosedale Abbey churchyard. Some scenes from the event (photos by Linda Chambers):
A very special thanks to Charlotte Tomlin for her excellent playing of the Last Post and Reveille (on a bugle she had never played before) and to Rev Christine Haddon-Reece for the Blessing at the end of the ceremony.
It is hoped by the time of VJ Day in late August/early September this year that a proper celebration of the 75th anniversary of the end of the Second World War can be held in the dale, which would also make up for the loss of the show – watch this space.
