So typical of Rosedale – torrential rain overnight, then an overcast morning with traders and some horseboxes having to be towed into the ground, then glorious sunshine to finish off a most enjoyable day.
A great big vote of thanks to all those volunteers who worked so hard to help set up the showgrounds and then directed traffic, manned the gates and generally ensured another smooth running and highly successful show.
And another for those, many of them the same, who spent Sunday taking everything apart and storing it all for next year. As they toiled, they were treated to a flypast of the RAF’s Red Arrows (sorry, no pics) – a day late, but never mind!
Two very well known harpists gave an excellent concert in St Mary and St Lawrence Church on Friday 17 August, the eve of the Rosedale Show. In the first half, Fiona Katie Roberts played exciting, rhythmical African and Arabic inspired pieces, manly composed by her husband David, on her unique quadruple harp.

In the second half Mark Harmer, the most ‘visited’ harpist on the internet, played a selection of traditional Welsh and Swedish pieces, two modern Italian compostitions and ended with four pieces by the legendary Irish harpist Thurlough O’Carolan. See Mark on www.youtube.com/markharmer
Also many thanks to Penny Leask and Anthea Reid for organising the excellent refreshments enjoyed by an appreciative audience at the interval. A great start to the Show!
