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.
THANK YOU ALL

Not much progress to report as the recent wet weather has prevented work on the site. Some restoration of the approaches to the kilns area is needed and the immediate area of the workings needs tidying up.
There will be a wreath laying ceremony in Rosedale Abbey Churchyard on Sunday 13 November 2016 at 10.00 am. All attending are asked to gather in the church at that time.
