The stalls on the green on the Whit Bank Holiday Monday are an old village tradition in Rosedale – this year they ranged from cakes, bric-a-brac, tombola and even worm juice!

Very many thanks to all who helped throughout the day and to those who donated items for sale. The result was the magnificent sum of £728.00 being raised towards the church roof repair appeal.

Another Bad Move

Parts of a second series of the comedy soap opera ‘Bad Move’ are being filmed in the village on Wednesday 16 May. Principally, the action will concern a village parade, hence the straw sheaves on the school railings, the bunting and other items on the village green. The location managers ask that locals do not stand around and watch the proceedings and to avoid parking in the indicated areas.

Yorkshire Air Ambulance Fund Raiser – 9 March 2018

A fundraising event for the Yorkshire Air Ambulance was held in the Updale Reading Room on Friday evening, 9 March 2018. The event started off with an  introduction by Kevin Hutchinson from the YAA, who explained the role, operating methods and the funding of the service, summarising it by saying that Yorkshire had five million people, four million acres,  three thousand pounds per call-out for each the services’s  two helicopters, so if everyone in the county gave just one pound per year the YAA would be fully funded!

After that, the Updale Nature Recorder gave a fascinating slide show tour of the flora and fauna of the dale, from sneezeworts to snakes to snow buntings and much else in between.

Finally, the evening ended with the ever popular raffle and guess-the helicopter-landing site game and tea with Maggie Barraclough’s outstanding cream scones all of which, along with ticket money and YAA merchandise sales raised the magnificent sum of £732 on the night.

Heartfelt thanks to all who helped set up the event, to all who came and donated prizes for the raffle and who gave so generously for the tea and scones.
