The 2017 inaugural East Midlands Women's Awards was held in Uppingham in Rutland on October 20th with an astonishing 63 entries submitted for consideration by a regional panel of judges. 

The Awards evening, a black tie gala event attended by 110 guests and held in the Garden Terrace of The Falcon Hotel, saw local nominee Pam Dalby, Chair of Uppingham in Bloom, secure the market town leaders award for her personal  achievement in leading the team that has repeatedly secured major awards for Uppingham in the East Midlands in Bloom competition. Runner up for the same award was Patricia Stuart-Mogg, the Stamford Town Clerk.

A total of 9 major awards covering the professions, sciences, arts  and the voluntary sector were presented at the ceremony, compered by BBC news presenters Maurice Flynn and Rupal Rajani.

Uppingham Electric Car Reaches Portugal PDF Print E-mail

As part of a trial to prove that an electric car can now serve as one's main car rather than a second car, an Uppingham based BMW I3 has reached the north of Portugal having travelled through France and Spain.  The car called first at Uppingham's twin town Caudebec en Caux, France (pictured), where it was recharged by one of the town's twinning association families prior to a visit to the local Mairie. 

Recharging the car on its journey has been via a mix of public charging points and free overnight charges from hotels en route. A celebratory charge in Porto, Portugal was provided by the city's BMW I dealer before the vehicle toured the north of the country and finally boarded a ferry in Santander, Spain  to return to the midlands via Portsmouth.

Rutland County Council has confirmed it is to offer a five year interest free loan to Community Partnership Uppingham First to help it purchase a nearly new minibus to relaunch an Uppingham Hopper service. Subject to support by volunteer drivers, the offer should enable the service to be relaunched early in the new year.

Repayment of the loan will be facilitated partly by business and community donations. A decision is now awaited from Uppingham Town Council as to whether it will part support the bus running costs estimated at £500 per month.
