Following an invitation from the Rotary Club of Uppingham to join its members on The Eyebrook Walk on Sunday March 12th 2017, organisers have reported their pleasure with the public response. One hundred and thirty members of the public completed the walk which is held each year in aid of LOROS & other charities supported by Rotary.

The walk covered a gentle 4.6 miles of pathway and minor roads around the beautiful Eyebrook Reservoir initially through a limited access Nature Reserve (by kind permission of TATA Steel plc).

The reservoir is a major trout fishery, an important habitat for water birds of all types and has a historic connection to the Dambusters who practised over its surface prior to the Dams Raid in 1943.

Funds raised are still being calculated but are expected to be in excess of £1500.

altChelsea Pensioners, famous for their iconic scarlet uniforms, come from across the world and make up a vibrant veteran community based in the Royal Hospital Chelsea. The hospital was founded by Charles 11 and has been the home since 1692 of the Chelsea Pensioners, all of whom are retired soldiers of the British Army.

An invited Uppingham audience was recently treated to a presentation by the Hospital's Principal Guide, Chelsea Pensioner Brian Cumming. Brian is pictured above in his splendid uniform while attending the event in The Falcon Hotel.
