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.
On a dank evening, over fifty people from the dale and visitors sang carols on the village green with varying degrees of lustiness, the volume increasing noticeably with the consumption of some excellent mulled cider and mince pies!
As a result, £270 was collected (including £50 from a whip round of the customers in Abbey Stores) for the Yorkshire Air Ambulance, a very worthy cause as there were several visits to Rosedale by the distinctive yellow helicopters of the service in 2017.
Thanks to all who contributed so generously and to Adrian and Diane Crawford for again leading the singing so ably. The same again next year?
Father Christmas visited Rosedale Abbey this evening, delighting young and old in his brightly colored sleigh, with Santa’s helpers from the Ryedale Lions collecting for local good causes.
We wish Father Christmas well on his busy rounds of local villages and towns and look forward to seeing him again next year.
The dale’s traditional pre-Christmas auction was held in the Coach House Inn on Saturday 18 November 2017. Amongst much merriment and relaxing inhibitions, masterminded by Dave Seller as the auctioneer, assisted by Sue Foster and Ena Dent, with Lorraine Dale and Pam Seller keeping the money flowing in, the grand sum of £1430 was raised for good causes, including the Reading Room, Yorkshire Air Ambulance and the Rosedale Community Fund.
As ever, huge thanks to Dave Oakey and the Coach House team, to those who donated auction lots so generously and to all who helped make it such a memorable evening.
A memorial service for the late Jackie Brown was held in a packed out St Mary and St Lawrence Church on Friday 17 November, with Father Bill Godfrey officiating.
Thanks to Ian and the Brown family the retiring collection was in aid of the ‘Save Rosedale Abbey Church’ appeal. The marvellous sum of £1100 was raised which is a great tribute to the love and affection for Jackie held by her family and friends and from all in the dale.
