Many thanks to Margaret and the other helpers from the RHS and to Hilary and the staff of the Coach House for a successful and enjoyable coffee morning, in spite of the sudden snow, which raised £67.20 for the Society – well done from the Treasurer!
Gerry Starling and the Hartoft Sireens led the lusty singing of carols in The Blacksmiths at Hartoft on Christmas Eve, followed by a successful draw conducted in a firm and robust manner by Howard Hebron, the landlord of the inn.
For more details of the very full social programme over Christmas and The New Year at the Blacksmiths and the Coach House in Rosedale Abbey see the post below.
Twenty intrepid carollers sang all the old favourites by the village Christmas Tree on a drizzly Saturday evening, fortified by quantities of mulled wine and mince pies.
Don’t forget there is the traditional Midnight Service in the Church of St Mary and St Laurence on Christmas Eve starting at 11.30pm.
The last 2012 tea and chat session for the Rosedale History Society was held in the Updale Reading Room on 2 December. The three ladies who help with providing the outstanding tea and cakes, Carol Cockerill, Margaret Truran and Monica Wilson, were each presented with Christmas garlands by the Secretary, Linda Chambers, in appreciation of all their support and hard work in aid of the RHS throughout the year.
A note for the diaries: the first Tea and Chat in 2013 will be on Sunday 6 January between 2 and 4 pm. The research will be as stimulating and the refreshments as delicious as ever!
A message from Colin Westwood, following on from the report below on the Christmas Auction held recently at the White Horse Farm Inn:
A charity auction in aid of local charities and the Updale Reading Room was held at the White Horse Farm Inn on Saturday night. Dave Seller was in his accustomed role as the auctioneer, ably assisted by Carol Cockerill and Margaret Truran. Thanks also to Christine and Jim and the team at the Inn for hosting a fun and successful evening which raised £930 (now well over £1000) for our good causes.
At the Coach House every Sunday at 8.30pm
Last year’s winner of Open The Box won over £300, and there’s a prize for the quiz too so get yourselves down here to get winning!
