ROSEDALE SHOW SOCIETY DINNER – 8 DECEMBER 2023

Posted on . No Comments

Fifty four members of the Show Committee and their guests sat down to a delicious pie and pudding supper in the Coach House Inn on Friday night, 8 December. Mr Arthur Yeoman, this year’s President, was the guest of honour. Sam Dring, the Committee Chair, gave a summary of the 2023 show and thanked all who had helped make it a most successful event after an enforced gap of three years.

Planning is already well underway for the next show which is due to be held on Saturday 17 August 2924. As ever, the Committee asks that people note the date and if they can help out in any way prior to and on the day of the Show to contact any member of the Committee.

Finally, thanks again to the staff of the Coach House for hosting us all to an excellent evening.

ROSEDALE SHOW 2023

Posted on . No Comments

At last, Rosedale has its show back after a gap of three years. A huge amount of work has gone into the planning and set-up of the show by Sam Dring and the Show Committee with, it has to be admitted, some scratching of the collective head to remember how it was done before!

Setting up the rings and erecting the tentage started on Tuesday 15 August and preparations were almost fully complete by noon on Friday 18 August thanks to the stirling efforts of a small team of hard working volunteers:

Pressing in fence posts for arena fencing
Tying on the fencing around the main ring
Preparing the smart new-style marquee for the Industrial classes.

After a very damp night, Saturday 19 August turned out to be a warm, semi-sunny day which brought out the crowds in their many thousands (final figures to be confirmed) for the show. The ground however was still very soft, but thanks to the tireless work on local farmers the horseboxes and larger vehicles were successfully delivered and towed back out at the end of the day. Here are some snap shots to remind us all of an excellent day all round:

Early birds starting to lay out entries in the Industrial tent.
The First Prize – after three years, the first prize of the 23 Show was presented by Ms Jess Johnson of Terrington.
The Rosedale History Society’s 150th Rosedale Show Anniversary Exhibition. Parts of the Exibition will be on display in Rosedale Abbey church for the rest of the holiday season.

As in previous years, the revived Show was put on only through the hard work of the Show Committee members and the team of volunteers who gathered to set up the show area, who ran the entry gates , shepherded the traffic, crunched all the entry tickets, cleaned the trophies and assisted the stewards and judges and , of course, Adam Collier for his wonderful commentary on the day’s proceedings – our heartfelt thanks to all who contributed and we look forward to seeing you again next year on the Show Field on Saturday 17 August.

ROSEDALE MAKE, BAKE AND GROW SHOW PLUS SHEEP!

Posted on . No Comments

The Make, Bake and Grow Show and the Sheep Show were held on the Turret Field, in the church and on the Milburn Field on Saturday afternoon, 20 August 2022. Blessed by warm weather, all parts of the event turned out to be very well attended by local folk and visitors alike.

The church element is expected to make a substantial sum for the church repair fund (Afternote: £848.00 was raised, an excellent result ).

The Bake, Make and Grow organising group would like to thank everyone who helped at or attended their event held in the Turret field on Saturday 20th August. 

The amazing support from both the local community and visitors helped to make the day a wonderful success. 

After paying expenses, monies raised will be donated to the Reading Room, the school, the church, the community fund and to mountain rescue. 

Thank you!

Heartfelt thanks to all who organised, helped out and donated to this very successful event. With luck and a strong community effort it is hoped that there will be a full Rosedale Show again in 2023.

Rosedale Show 2020

With great regret, the Rosedale Show Committee has announced that the Show has been cancelled for this year. There were just too many forward financial commitments to be made now which could be put at risk later if any Wuhan Flu measures are still in place in August, as now seems likely from government forecasts.

Fingers crossed and see you all in 2021!
