As has become a tradition in Rosedale, the auction in aid of the Rosedale Reading Room/Village Hall was a noisy, crowded and joyful occasion which raised around £3,500 thanks to the outstanding generosity of the donors of auction lots and the uninhibited, highly competitive bidding of those in the audience!
As always huge thanks to Dave Oakey and the team at the Coach House for coping with the onslaught, and to Sue Foster and the auction helpers for an outstanding evening – a great start to Christmas.
