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:
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:
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.
Show time is rapidly approaching and the organising committee asks if anyone can help set the show:
a. Tuesday 15 August at 6pm – Show Field set up
b. Saturday 19 August – in the Industrial Tent at 4.30pm to help take down the exhibits tables and screens.
c. Sunday 20 August at 9.00am – on the Show Field to help take down the arenas etc.
The Show is back after an enforced break of three years so please come along to help out and make it a great success in 2023.
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.
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.
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!
The Rosedale Show AGM will be held in the Updale Reading Room on 20 November 2019 at 7.00pm.
All are welcome to attend.
There was solid rain for the whole of the day before the show so there was much apprehension about access to the show field on the day itself. However, after a slow and slippery start, the sun came out, the ground dried up quickly and the crowds turned up to make the day a great success. Some images as a reminder of the day:
A huge vote of thanks to Sam Dring and her Show Committee and to all the volunteers who set up the show field and to the stewards and other helpers on the day – it could not happen without your dedication to making the Show such a success.
This a call for cakes and buns/scones for the ever popular Church Cake Stall at the Show on Saturday coming.
Items should be brought to the stall on the day or before hand to Anthea Read – contact her on 417156 or email on email@example.com
The annual Rosedale Show was held on the Milburn Field on Saturday 18 August with good crowds enjoying the displays and events in breezy, sunny weather. Some scenes from around the ground:
The show could not be run each year without the sterling efforts of Sam Dring and her committee and all the volunteers who help put up and take down the showground, who man the gates and direct traffic – heartfelt thanks to them all.
Also, a reminder of the Rosedale Flower Festival in aid of the ‘Save Rosedale Abbey Church Appeal’ which will be in the church of St Mary and St Lawrence from 15 to 23 September with a Harvest Service and Supper at 6.00pm on Saturday 22 September – all are very much welcome.
This a call for volunteers to help set-up the show arena and rings – please gather at the Milburn Field on Tuesday 14 August at 6.00pm. Bring some work gloves, pliers/multitools and a joyous heart!
Without volunteer help, the show could not be staged every year and so please make an effort to spare some time to help next Tuesday evening on the Milburn Field.
