Uppingham First and its constituent Business and Neighbourhood Forums  have reached agreement with Leicestershire Police and its Rutland LPU Commander to work toward the strengthening of policing in Uppingham by collaborating to recruit two police special constables with the power of arrest to be based in the town.

Volunteer Police Special Constables can work different hours to paid officers and can help support not only the existing beat team, but also the town's night time and weekend economy. 

Commenting on the initiative Business  Forum Chair, Neighbourhood Forum Coordinator and Neighbourhood Watch lead Ron Simpson BEM  said, "These new posts will be an excellent opportunity for members of the community who are interested in a future career in the police service or simply wish to make a significant contribution to community safety and the prevention of crime in Uppingham. The community welcomes the Leicestershire Force's positive attitude toward this initiative which will get properly under way in the summer."

Hopper Attracts Wide Interest PDF Print E-mail
Saturday, 26 May 2018 11:08

altCommunity Partnership Uppingham First met this week to consider the very positive response to the launch of its five day a week Uppingham Hopper bus service. Congratulations on the creation of the service have arrived from all over the UK with national, regional and local media taking an interest. 

The new service not only provides community transport for the elderly  to the Uppingham Surgery and shops, but also links the town's key employment areas to the town's bus interchange, enabling workers to travel to Uppingham from Leicester, Oakham and Corby by public transport and then transfer to their employment site via the Hopper. The service only currently serves flexi-tiime workers due to its 9am to 5pm operating hours, but a study in the autumn of employee, apprentice and student needs may provide data to justify an expansion of the service.    

 
Market Place Delays PDF Print E-mail

As the summer tourism season begins, community and business groups have expressed concern about the delay in restoring the metalwork and stonework in Uppingham market place and high street, one of the town's top visitor attractions.

The issue will feature in the Rutland Times on May 31st 2018. Decorative metalwork has been missing for over 12 months with the metalwork suppliers being blamed for the delay. Temporary tarmac patches in the paving await replacement stone. 

Uppingham market place is in a Conservation Area and as such has protected status. The groups are urging prompt action by the highways authority and, if necessary, a search for alternative contractors who can meet an urgent deadline.
