An attractive estate on the edge of Uppingham has learned it is to be recognised at the 2017 Uppingham in Bloom Ball celebrations to mark the town's outstanding success in the 2017 Britain in Bloom Awards.

The efforts of residents of The Beeches and The Beeches Residents Association (BRA) in the 'It's Your Neighbourhood' section of the East Midlands in Bloom competition are rumoured to have impressed the touring judge and led to a very high grade being awarded. All will be revealed on Saturday November 25th at the prestigious evening when the Uppingham community will come together to celebrate its success. Tickets for the event are still available from The Falcon Hotel.

On Wednesday November 29th, Uppingham Town Centre hosted the 111th Uppingham Fatstock Show. An annual event unique in the UK.  Once again the show was broadcast around the world by the award winning Uppingham Webcam. 

Pictured is the control centre of the webcam which overlooks the market place venue for the show.

Visitors to the town for the event were full of praise for the farming community and the committee that organises the show. The manner in which the  committee is able to run the show in the heart of the town, yet keep its high street open for traffic and trading, receives much praise every year. The show is an outstanding visitor attraction and testimony to the town's rural heritage and history.

Remarkably, by mid afternoon, the market place is swept and restored to its usual role as public highway and town centre parking.  Why not look in through the webcam next year on the last Wednesday in November 2018.
