The Ryedale Lions are collecting for three very worthy causes this year: The Wilf Ward Trust for Autistic Children, The Encephalitis Trust and Scarborough and Ryedale Young Carers.

The last tea and chat meeting of the Society for 2019 was held on Sunday 1 December in the Updale Reading Room, when the members made a presentation to Carol Cockerill and Margaret Truran to thank them for their hard work in support of the Society throughout the year and the wonderful tea and cakes which make each meeting such a treat.
Just a reminder that the meetings of the RHS are held on the first Sunday of each month from 2.00 to 4.00pm. Entry is free and there is a wealth of archive material and internet access available on the social, family and industrial of Rosedale – so why not come along on Sunday 5 January 2019 for a warm welcome, great chat and excellent tea and cakes!

Rosedale’s traditional Christmas Auction in aid of the Reading Room/Village Hall was held at the Coach House Inn on Saturday night. After much mirth and merriment and plenty of Christmas spirit, the wonderful sum of £1600 was raised to support the running and maintenance of the building for another year.
As ever, many thanks go to Dave Oakey and the Coach House team for their cheerful and professional service throughout the hectic evening and to Dave Seller and his assistants for auctioning of the huge number of lots so efficiently – a memorable night in Rosedale and a great start to the Festive Season.
One of the Ryedale elves has told me that Father Christmas is planning to visit Rosedale Abbey on this coming Monday, 2 December, and will be stopping outside the school gates at around 4.40pm.
See you all there!
Helen and Craig are delighted to announce that the tea room in Abbey Stores is back open for business after an extensive re-decoration over the last week.
They would also like to thank all who helped to raise £406 at yesterday’s bingo night in aid of Hospice UK and also those who contributed in other events which have now brought in a total of over £5,500 for the charity – a magnificent effort all round.
