The annual Christmas Auction took place in a packed out Coach House Inn in Rosedale Abbey on Saturday night and raised the magnificent sum of £2,110 for the Rosedale Village Hall/Reading Room. The 2021 figure was £1,756 so well done to everyone involved.
Heartfelt thanks to all who donated items so generously, and to Lorraine and Trevor Dale, Sue Foster, Lorrie Westwood and Dave Seller for setting up and conducting the auction with such good humour. Also many thanks to Dave Oakey and his Coach House team for their efficiency and patience throughout the very busy evening.

On the following day, Sunday 5th, between 2.00-4.00pm., we will be having our first Tea and Chat meeting back in the Updale Reading Room in almost two years. We look forward to seeing some familiar faces and also welcome new ones to our very informal get-togethers. Could those who would like to come along please bring a mask and respect social distancing. Refreshments will be available.
Please note, future meetings are going to be quarterly, not monthly. Our meetings for 2022 will be held on the first Sunday in March, June, September and December.
In defiance of Storm ARWEN the Christmas auction went ahead in The Coach House Inn on Saturday and even with a reduced attendance over previous years and thanks to the generosity of those who donated items for the auction and those who bid for them, over £2000 was raised for the Reading Room fund.
Thanks also to Sue Foster and Lorraine Dale for organising the event and, as always, to Dave Oakey and the team at the Coach House for hosting it so efficiently.
