In answer to some queries by visitors, work continues on the conversion of the school caretaker’s house into an out-station of Lady Lumley’s School, Pickering, for outward bound type activities in the dale, or so it is thought. News/comments welcome.

Screenwaves is a rural cinema scheme operated by Reel Solutions with funding from Creative England and the BFI. It aims to take the inconvenience out of cinema going in far flung places by bringing the big screen to village communities in rural North Yorkshire.
We are pleased to announce that MY WEEK WITH MARILYN will be playing in Screenwaves venues throughout March 2012. Michelle Williams shines in her multi award nominated performance as Marilyn Monroe. The story is based on real events surrounding Marilyn’s visit to the UK to film The Prince and the Showgirl and a dreamy fling she had with a young assistant (played by Eddie Redmayne, last seen in the BBC’s adaptation of Birdsong). The British landscape has never looked better and with a stella British supporting cast including Judi Dench and Kenneth Brannagh who plays Laurence Olivier to hammy perfection, My Week with Marilyn is set to be the new King’s Speech.
Kenneth Brannagh was nominated for best supporting actor for My Week with Marylin

Rosedale Abbey School
A wonderful event organised by Sue Procter in aid of Stepping Stones Orphanage, India.
Teas & Cake were excellent, served on fine china with beautiful tea pots, a band played in the corner and there were more crafts than you could shake a stick at made by Sue and the School Children of Rosedale. Attendance was amazing with what appeared to be more people in the Reading Room than humanly possible !
Sue Says, “Can’t thank everyone enough for your support on Sunday, I can’t believe what a huge success it was, and what a wonderful time people were having.
I truly believe we have an amazing community in Rosedale and we must appreciate each other..”
The grand total raised on the day was £493.57 In aid of Stepping Stones Orphanage in India, with the final total from other donations and Sue’s treatments bringing the amount for the children to over £800.
Its a tidy sum that will make a positive difference to the lives of these children.
STOP Press – Total Amount raised now over £1000
