Rosedale Church Closure

  1. In view of the virulence of the pandemic and following Government advice, Rosedale PCC has voted to close the church for public worship for the time being. This includes opening the church for private prayer.
  2. Irrespective of how well we can assess and manage the risk in church, it seems entirely wrong to invite people to leave their homes to get to church when the Government’s advice is so strongly to Stay at Home.

Rosedale Christmas Auction 2020

Sadly but as expected the famous (or should that be infamous!) Christmas auction will not take place this year in the Coach House Inn. Instead there is now a draw where punters can ‘buy’ squares in the Abbey Stores and the Coach House Inn. Proceeds will go towards Rosedale Community School, the church, the Reading Room and Rosedale Football Club.

Details of prizes and the date of the draw will be notified as soon as known. Your support is, as ever, strongly requested

Rosedale Remembrance 2020

Some twenty five people from around the dale attended a simple, socially distanced Act of Remembrance at the war memorial in Rosedale Abbey churchyard on Sunday 8 November 2020.

After prayers, the names of Rosedale’s Fallen in the Great War, the Second World War and the Korean War were read out, The Last Post and Reveille were sounded and wreaths laid on behalf of the Church, the Parish Council and The Women’s Institute.

The First Pint!

Cheers to Denty!

Having drunk the last pints in the Coach House Inn, Rosedale Abbey, at lockdown in March, Dave Oakey and friends celebrated with the first pints on re-opening the pub in Saturday 4 July. The toast was to another regular, John Dent of blessed memory.

The Coach House is now officially open for business with table service only for food and drinks. Customers are asked to be patient and show understanding with the temporary limitations required by law.
