Paul Hayward, local motor sport historian
Paul Hayward, a local motor sport historian, gave a most interesting talk last night on the history of the once nationally famous hill climbs held on Chimney Bank in the the 1920s.
The event, which was sponsored by the Rosedale History Society and held in the the History Room of the White Horse Farm Inn by kind permission of Christine and Jim, was attended by over 30 people, both local and visitors to the dale, with £62 being raised in donations to the Next Steps mental health charity.
The Rosedale History Society holds more information on the hill climbs. Come and see it at the next Tea and Chat meeting of the Society which will be at the Updale Reading Room on Sunday 5 May from 2 to 4 pm.
Keith Swales will be performing live at the White Horse from 8.30pm Saturday 2nd March

Fifteen brave souls in Rosedale fire walked for the charity Little Heroes this Sunday at the White Horse Farm Inn. Although the final sums have yet to be done, it is thought that the target of £1,500 has been well exceeded – a brilliant effort by all concerned.
