Lord Lieutenant Visits Uppingham Christmas Fair

The Lord Lieutenant of Rutland Dr Sarah Furness took time this month to visit the innovative Uppingham Christmas Fair organised by the Rotary Club of Uppingham and hosted by The Falcon Hotel.

Ten local artisans and traders exhibited at the annual fair which now has a firm place in the Uppingham calendar. Each was allocated a separate room in the hotel on a one way trail so as to to observe social distancing regulations.
