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.

A meeting of volunteer drivers for the Uppingham Hopper has confirmed they are keen to see the service restored in 2018. Additional volunteers are now being sought to expand the pool of available drivers, but sufficient staffing is available to ensure the project can go ahead in January 2018. The search is now on for a suitable bus.

The new service will incorporate an updated route and an amended timetable will be published. Bus sponsors and donors are being asked to make their  financial contributions by the end of November. These include a £25k five year interest free loan loan from Rutland County Council.
