Members of the Uppingham Community Emergency Plan Coordinating Committee have praised the response from Uppingham residents when additional volunteers were called for to help respond to the Coronavirus pandemic.
Over 40 volunteers have stepped forward to strengthen the permanent emergency response and UppWatch good neighbour teams set up in the town three years ago.
UppWatch also has its disposal the Uppingham Hopper Bus team who are currently delivering medicines, vegetable boxes and heavy bags of shopping for those that are self isolating or housebound. Home based businesses, town centre centre shops and the Friday market are all being supported. Call 01572 495050 for further information.
