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 Walking Festival was blessed with warm weather with a good turnout of a mixture of regulars and many first time visitors.
The Rosedale branch of the Women’s Institute celebrated its 80 anniversary – it was formed on 6 July 1939 – with a guest tea in the Updale Reading Room on Monday 10 June 2019.
The annual charity football match between Rosedale FC and the NYM Gamekeepers team took place on Sunday 9 June on Rosedale’s infamous sloping pitch.
The final score was believed to be around 8 – 2 in Rosedale’s favour, but it was a hard contested match and, more importantly, a friendly end of season run-out for both teams.
A big thank you to all who supported and took part in the Rosedale Wedding Dress Festival. We raised £3,851 (and moved the Angel up a notch). That takes our total fund-raising to a grand £26,487. Our target is £90,000.
We can now show we mean business in grant applications to save Rosedale Church from closure.
Congratulations to the five raffle winners! And thank you to the local businesses who provided the prizes and supported the event.
Any ideas for the next fundraising event will be warmly welcomed. Until then, thank you again – your donations and positive feedback have been very much appreciated.
The preview evening for the Wedding Dress Festival in aid of the appeal for St Mary and St Lawrence Church in Rosedale Abbey was very well attended and over £655 was raised for the appeal fund.
The festival, with its wonderful display of over thirty wedding dresses, stories, memorabilia and sales of local arts and crafts runs through to Sunday 2 June when there will be a Renewal of Wedding Vows Service in the Church at 10.30. Entry is free from 10.00am each day – donations to the appeal are, of course, very welcome!
Lyndsey says that if you feel too shy you don’t have to do the class at Rosedale Reading Room, but why not pop in for a coffee, buy some raffle tickets and watch the fun while supporting this great cause.
