The very popular auction in aid of the Updale Reading Room was held in the Coach House Inn on Saturday evening. As usual, the event was packed out and became livelier and the bidding more extravagant as the night went on! The magnificent sum of £2010 was raised, the most this event has ever achieved.
The organisers would like to express heartfelt thanks to Sue Foster for all her work in helping set the event up in what was a very trying time for her. Also thanks to Dave Oakey and his great team at the Coach House and to Dave Seller, Lori Westwood, Ena Dent and Trevor and Lorraine Dale for running the auction. And, of course, to all those who donated lots for the auction and who gave so freely in bidding for them.
The standard has been set high this year, so the challenge is to do even better in 2019!
The famous Rosedale Christmas Auction in aid of the Updale Reading Room/Village Hall will be held in the Coach House Inn on Saturday 24 November 2018 starting at 8.30pm sharp. The Coach House will be open for donations of auction items from 6.00pm.
All are very welcome to join us on this fun evening, when you can top up on your Christmas presents and contribute to local charitable causes by competing to pay outrageous prices for bottles of pickled onions, for example!
David Ross and trustees of his foundation visited Rosedale on Tuesday 5 June 2018 to observe progress on the Land of Iron project, to which the Foundation has contributed £300,000. They were briefed in the Reading Room by Tom Mutton, the project manager, before heading out to East Mines on bicycles to see the work that has been done already and to meet volunteers on task on the line.

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.
