Rosedale Show Needs You! Showground Set-Up 14 August

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.

Rosedale Show and Church Repair Appeal – 19 August 2017

Congratulations! Judging one of the sheep classes.

“Do you want water on those?”

Sunshine, showers and a blustery wind typified show day at Rosedale on Saturday 19 August, but as usual the crowds of locals and visitors came out and enjoyed the varied displays of horses and other livestock, exhibitions, trade stands and live music throughout the day.

“Thanks very much!” – Heavy Horse Judging

Much thanks to all on the Show Committee and to the volunteers who manned the gates and controlled the traffic to make the day such a success.

Thanks must also go to all those who donated to the Rosedale Abbey church repair appeal by buying the excellent calendars on offer or by giving directly or both. The grand sum of  £546.30 was raised for this vital cause.

The remaining calendars will be on sale shortly in the village between now and the church appeal sponsored coffee morning in the Coach House Inn on Saturday 2 September from 10.00 to 12.00 am – in the meantime, if you have any queries, please call 01751 417071 and leave a message.

Thanks again to all who helped make this Saturday such a special day for Rosedale.

The Great War 1914 – 1918

On the eve of the 100th anniversary of the start of the Great War on 4 August 1914, we should pause to remember those from Rosedale who gave their lives in that horrific conflict.

A number of local history societies, including Rosedale History Society, are staging a Great War exhibition at the NYM Railway station at Pickering for the next week, after which the Rosdale displays will be shown at Rosedale Show on 16 August.

Finally, there is a planned ‘Lights Out’ throughout the nation on Monday night, 4 August, between 10 and 11pm, when all public buildings will turn off all lights except one per building. Private householders are being encouraged to do the same, with perhaps just one candle or similar small light in a window during the dark hour.

Rosedale Show 2013

A bit of a mixed bag – overcast but clear for the morning and then the drizzle. Entries for most classes were up, but the gate receipts (still counting) are thought to be a bit down on the last two very successful years because, no doubt, of the pessimistic weather forecasts.
