Civic and community leaders have praised the Uppingham community and its event organisers for their impressive display of community involvement at the town's WW1 commemoration event on August 4th entitled 'Uppingham Remembers'. Comments received by Uppingham First, the town's community partnership include:-
Roger Begy - Leader of Rutland County Council - A very impressive display of community involvement. The town should be proud of both those that attended and those that organised it.
Mark Shaw - Chair of the Uppingham Neighbourhood Forum and the Beeches Residents' Association - The introductory dinner followed by the audio visual presentation organised by the Rotary Club of Uppingham was a truly remarkable occasion. Informative, engaging, educational and very well presented. The exhibition of the Uppingham fallen, the candlelit procession and the church service all came together to create an event befitting the occasion. The mood, the tone, the atmosphere was just faultless. A most exceptional evening to remember for many years to come.
Margaret Simpson - President of the Rotary Club of Uppingham - This was a memorable and moving event that confirmed the Uppingham fallen are not forgotten. We will remember them.
The WW1 Uppingham Remembers event attracted over 350 people to its candlelit march. Pictured is Deputy Mayor Alec Crombie, leading the procession up a darkened High Street to St Peter & St Paul's Church in the Market Place.
