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.

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.

altOne of the projects in the recently published 2017 Uppingham Town Centre & Business Zones Plan (UTC&BZP)  has attracted a national grant offer.

The E J Toon Housing Project for local young people has been awarded a preliminary viability study grant to establish whether the project is feasible.  The initiative has been made possible by the donation of land originally owned by deceased undertaker E J Toon (pictured)   

Work on the study will commence in late October. See the project outline and the UTC&BZP  www.uppinghamneighbourhoodplan.info
