Finlay Gillies, a pupil at Ryedale School, has been selected for the England Under 15 Basketball Team and will be travelling to Paris on Thursday 18 April to win his first cap for his country playing in the Lion’s Cup.
Finlay will be accompanied on the six day trip by his proud parents, Stephen and Kate – we wish them all the best of luck on and off the court!
It was good to see a group of riders enjoying a hearty breakfast in the Abbey Stores tea room after a long but enjoyable ride around the dale this morning, 7 April 2019.
Craig and Helen hosted a fund raising cheese and wine party at the Abbey Stores on Friday evening in aid of Hospices UK. Enjoyable wines and cheeses from around the world and a very tempting raffle helped raise the magnificent total of £810.50.
Helen and Nicola have set themselves a target of £4500 and are planning a number of other fund raising events in the next twelvemonth, including an arduous Arctic challenge in January 2020 when they will travel to northern Finland to take part in snowshoe treks, cross-country skiing and dog sledding, all in expected minus 30c temperatures!

As throughout the nation, people of Rosedale gathered at our war memorial on Sunday 11 November to lay wreaths and remember those from the dale who gave their lives in the Great War and in subsequent conflicts.
Before the wreath laying, a Book of Remembrance, prepared by the Rosedale History Society to commemorate those men who gave their lives and also those who served and returned, was presented to the church for permanent display.
We Will Remember Them
The excellent Supermobile Library will be visiting Rosedale 0n (all days Mondays from 5.00pm to 7.00pm) 13 August , 10 and 24 September , 8 and 22 October, 5 and 19 November and 3 and 17 December .
Not only is there a wide selection of books, fiction, factual and reference but also good wi-fi reception and we all know how important that is here!
If you haven’t tried it before, look in this coming 13 August evening and see for yourselves what a good facility this is. Remember too, that if we don’t use it we’ll lose it.
SAVE ROSEDALE CHURCH
The stalls on the green on the Whit Bank Holiday Monday are an old village tradition in Rosedale – this year they ranged from cakes, bric-a-brac, tombola and even worm juice!
Very many thanks to all who helped throughout the day and to those who donated items for sale. The result was the magnificent sum of £728.00 being raised towards the church roof repair appeal.
The coffee morning in aid of the Riding For The Disabled raised the excellent sum of £300 for this very deserving charity.
Thanks again to all who contributed prizes to the raffle and those who bought tickets and cakes, and to Ali at the Coach House for helping the event run so smoothly.
The next coffee morning will be in support of The British Heart foundation and will be on Saturday 2 June from 10.00 to 12.00 am.
Please come along and support this worthy cause.
The coffee morning at the Coach House raised £341 in aid of the Mary’s Meals charity which aims to provide a daily meal in a place of education for more than one million of the world’s poorest children.
Thanks to all who helped run the event from Penelope Dawson-Brown, the coordinator, and to all who contributed a wide array of raffle prizes.
The next coffee morning on Saturday 3 March will be in aid of Yorkshire Cancer Research – look out for more details nearer the time.
