Many thanks to all who supported the race night at the Coach House. We raised an amazing £523 for the Reading Room / village hall fund.
Thanks must go to Dave Oakey, Jimmy Porter and Sue Foster for arranging the evening, June Scarth for the raffle and Pam Seller for running the tote.
The Reading room has constant running repairs and needs updating on the heating system. THANK YOU for all your support.
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.

Bidding well under way
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.
The coffee morning in aid of the Rosedale History Society held in the Coach House Inn raised £260, a valuable contribution to the running of the Society as, for example, it will help cover the costs of the annual research fees for the British Library and contributions to cover the cost of room hire and of broadband provision in the Reading Room.
Lots of chat, cakes and coffee!
Many thanks to all who donated cash, bought cakes and calendars and gave prizes for the raffle, and to Dave and Ali at the Coach House and to Margaret, Janet and Carol for running the raffle with such efficiency.
The next coffee morning will be on Saturday 4 November between 10.00 and 12.00 am, in aid of the Women’s Institute and will also include a craft fair. Also for your diaries, the Christmas Auction will held in the Coach House on Saturday 18 November starting at 8.30pm – auction lots gratefully received.
The Rosedale History Weekend held at the Updale Reading Room was very well attended, helped by the excellent weather with visitors, many from out of the dale, enjoying a wide display of industrial, social and natural history material on show. The renowned Kildale industrial historian, Malcolm Bisby gave a fascinating talk on Saturday on the development of the Rosedale branch on the North Eastern Railway and over thirty people (and three dogs) took part in the walks ups to East Mines over the two days

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.
The traditional pre-Christmas auction in aid of the Updale Reading Room and Martin’s House Hospice for Children was held at the White Horse Farm Inn on Saturday night. The proceedings were masterfully led by Dave Seller, ably assisted by his daughter Victoria.
Enjoying the crack and aiding good causes.
A total of £552 was raised, slightly down on previous years, but a tribute as always to the generosity of donors and those bidding for the array of excellent items on display.
Thanks also to all of the staff at the White Horse Farm Inn and an early Happy Christmas to all our readers!
PS.Don’t forget the Christmas Fair at Rosedale Abbey Community School on Thursday 26 November between 4 to 7pm, with mulled cider, handicrafts, cards, preserves and a raffle among other attractions on offer.
The traditional Rosedale winter charity auction was held at the White Horse Farm Inn on Saturday evening, 15 November 2104. A very good crowd attended and the selling of a huge variety of local produce and other items was conducted briskly and with customary efficiency by the Seller family, aided and abetted by members of the Updale Reading Committee.

The sale generated £900 of which half goes to the Updale Reading Room and the other £450 will be shared by two medical charities, Cancer Research and fundraising for a mobile heart monitor. An excellent result and thanks to all who donated so generously and to Christine for hosting the event again.
