Welcome to the Rosedale blog. This is where we share news and information about events in Rosedale and the wider community throughout the year. You’ll also find news about the village timetable, our micro enterprises, school events, clubs, and lively socials.
Father Christmas will be taking time out of his frantically busy schedule to visit Rosedale this Christmastide and give out presents to the children of the dale on Monday 3 December anytime after 4.30pm.
We expect his sleigh to land in the Community School at around 4.40, but one of his elves will no doubt tell us if the timings change in the meantime.
Looking forward to seeing all you boys and girls then – ho, ho, ho!
Thursday 22nd March 2018 – Easter Celebration at Rosedale Abbey CP School – 2pm – Easter Assembly led by the children followed by Easter Bake Off, Easter Bonnet Competition, refreshments and an opportunity to buy cake!
Thursday 29th March 2018 – 2pm – 5pm – Rosedale Abbey CP School Spring Fair
Rosedale Abbey CP School would like to say a big thank you to The Coach House for their very generous donation of £265, which will be used to fund educational visits for our children.
The annual Christmas Fair in aid of the Rosedale Community School was held in the school hall on Thursday 23 November. In a very festive atmosphere, just over £570 was raised to support school activities, an excellent effort all round:
“Can I have a ride-on mower, please Santa?”
Busy with stalls and activities
Thanks to all the stall holders and to those who donated prizes for the raffle and who ran activities to entertain the children. And off course, to Santa for turning up and dishing out presents!
And a reminder that Father Christmas will be revisiting the dale on 4 December at 4.40pm, parking up by the school gates, so come along and give him a warm Rosedale welcome.
Father Christmas is taking time out from his very busy schedule in December to call in on Rosedale Abbey and spread his Christmas cheer on Monday 4 December at 4.40 pm. He will park his sleigh just outside the school gates and will be escorted by his elves from the Ryedale Lions:
Santa in his sleigh
All are most welcome to come along and greet Santa with a heart yo ho ho or two!
In a tearful but happy occasion, the children, parents and friends of Rosedale Community Primary School said farewell to their much loved head teacher, Nicola Johnson. Nicola first came to Rosedale School in January 1991, taking over as head teacher from Diane Hughes. Then the school had 29 pupils. Now it has 22 in total with the number rising again and the fact that the school has survived at all is very largely down to the efforts of Nicola, as the chairman of the governors, Anthony Davies observed in his address.
Presenting Nicola with a specially baked ‘portrait’ cake! The other one was also specially baked by Darren and James at Graze on the Green.

The Junior School singing The Farewell Song – much use of tissues ensued!
Nicola Johnson – headmistress of many years for Rosedale School is retiring this term. Everyone is invited to her leaving tea party on 19th July 2.00pm in school. Anyone who would like to contribute to a leaving present please drop it into the school and any plates of sweet or savoury food would be much appreciated on the day. Thank you all and RSVP to 01751 417278
The nursery school element of the Rosedale Community Primary School was formerly opened this afternoon, Friday 25 January 2016. Unfortunately, Lady Anne McIntosh who was due to perform the ceremony, broke her wrist in London and was unable to travel North. Janet Frank, the Ryedale District councilor for the Dales Ward, kindly stood in to cut the ribbon and then the cake.

The traditional pre-Christmas auction in aid of the Updale Reading Room and Martin’s House Hospice for Children was held at the White Horse Farm Inn on Saturday night. The proceedings were masterfully led by Dave Seller, ably assisted by his daughter Victoria.
Enjoying the crack and aiding good causes.
A total of £552 was raised, slightly down on previous years, but a tribute as always to the generosity of donors and those bidding for the array of excellent items on display.
Thanks also to all of the staff at the White Horse Farm Inn and an early Happy Christmas to all our readers!
