altBack in 2016 many Rutland people participated in meetings about re-organising health services for Rutland.

Many questions were raised but nothing was heard further until a new document called "Next Steps" was published in August 2018 and will be addressed Rutland on Monday 19th November 2018.

Unfortunately this has coincided with refusal by the Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCGs) to consult the public on the closure of a substantial part of Leicester General Hospital after being asked to do so by the three local authority scrutiny committees last month.

This decision has grave implications for Rutland residents and, following letters written to the local newspapers, residents were urged to get involved in these plans and attend this meeting to have their views heard.

At the meeting Health authorities faced severe criticism of their failure to properly consult Rutlanders and explore their future aspirations.

altUppingham sustained its reputation for well organised pubic events today, Armistice Day November 11th 2018, with public praise for the town's programme of activities to mark the centenary of the end of WW1.

Pictured are town councillors and Neighbourhood Forum Executive members David Ainslie, Christine Edwards and Mark Shaw leading the civic and community section of the commemorative parade, walking behind the military standard on its way to St Peter and St Paul's Church for the town's memorial service.

Following the service, lunch and films were available in the church and the Neighbourhood Forum hosted a well attended commemorative lunch in The Falcon Hotel addressed by the Mayor of Oakham Adam Lowe. 

An evening beacon lighting ceremony was followed by a community dinner with music and verse hosted by the Rotary Club of Uppingham.
