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.
A coffee morning was held at the Coach House Inn in Rosedale Abbey on Saturday 7 January 2017 in aid of the Rosedale Football Club. In addition, Dave Oakey, the proprietor of the Inn presented Alastair Wilkinson, the player/manager of the club with £190 raised at the Christmas Draw on Christmas Eve.

Waiting for the raffle!
The raffle raised £220 for RFC and thanks to all who attended, donated prizes, and also to Dave and the team at the Coach House for hosting the event.
And a Happy New Year to all our visitors!
Around 40 locals and visitors gathered by the Christmas Tree to sing carols having warmed up with copious amounts of mulled cider and mince pies.
Mulled cider, mince pies and carollers aplenty!
Just over £180 was raised for the Yorkshire Air Ambulance, for which many thanks to all who contributed so generously.
Thanks also to Diane Crawford for providing the music and the delicious mince pies and to Linda Chambers for the equally tasty mulled cider. See you all next year ‘On The Green’.
Two charity events were held at the Coach House Inn this Saturday 3 November 2016. The first was a coffee morning held in aid of the Christmas Lights fund which raised an excellent £250 from donations, direct and for the ever popular raffle.
For the first time in many years the annual Christmas Auction in aid of the Reading Room was held at the Coach House. The inn was packed out for the night and and a boisterous audience bidded enthusiastically for the many items for sale.

The Reading Room Christmas Auction held at the Coach House raised an amazing £1200 – thank you to all who supported this event in any way, you have been so generous.
Special thanks must go to Dave and his staff at the Coach House for their support and use of the premises, and to Dave Seller our famous auctioneer who never disappoints, and my fellow trustees for their help with the event.

The coffee morning held in the Coach House Inn on Saturday 3 September realised £315.46 for the church roof fund. The church roof is in urgent need of repair and a very considerable sum of money needs to be raised to allow the major work required to be undertaken. Any suggestions for fundraising activities would be very welcome – please contact Anthea Read or any members of the Parochial Church Council.

Meantime, many thanks to Dave Oakey for the use of the Coach House (clearly his luck was in, having won four prizes in the raffle!) and, of course to Margaret and Carol as always for organising and running the ever popular raffle.
Dave Oakey, a long time resident of the village, has taken over from Howard Hebron as landlord of the Coach House Inn in Rosedale Abbey.
Dave training his biceps!
Dave looks forward to welcoming regular and new customers to the Inn. In turn, all of us wish him and his team good luck for the future.
Round thirty volunteers answered Anthea Read’s call to strim and rake the churchyard 0n the evening of Thursday 1 September, prior to the National Park people coming in the day after to tidy up and sow more wildflower seed in the conservation area.
All done and ready for the barbeque!
Anthea would like to thank all who came an helped out for their magnificent efforts and thanks also to Lorraine Dale and Ena Dent for preparing the delicious supper afterwards.
If anyone can spare the time, then the final strimming and raking will be starting at around 10.30am on Friday morning 2 September.
