Market Traders in Uppingham have accepted there is no threat to the continuation of the weekly market in Uppingham and have confirmed the withdrawal of a leaflet suggesting there was a need to campaign to 'save the town's market'.  Traders have now agreed to work with the Task Group preparing the Uppingham Town Centre & Business Zones Plan following a meeting between the two groups this week.

The meeting, the first in a series of discussions with interest groups in the town to discuss possible modifications to the first consultation version of the draft Uppingham Town Centre & Business Zones Plan, was described as 'positive and productive' by Task Group Chair and local businessman Edward Baines. Evidence presented to the meeting revealed that over 90% of respondents in 2015 surveys,  commissioned to inform the plan, had rated the weekly market as a top attraction for visitors and local residents. A further meeting in the autumn was agreed to review  plans on how the market might be further improved and the way forward once the initial consultation period is closed.

Earlier in the same week, agreement was also reached with Rutland County Council to review the second draft of the Plan in joint discussions later in the year. Responses  to the plan to date range from 'impressive' to concern about the options being considered for the market place. Additional solutions to the issues and challenges facing the town over the next 20 years identified in the plan are still welcomed by the Task Group at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.

An Uppingham resident and local businessman is campaigning on behalf of the British Hedgehog Preservation Society to inform the local community on how to help hedgehogs survive and flourish.   

Andrew Carter- Brown is circulating leaflets reminding residents that bread and milk harms hedgehogs and that instead they should be fed hedgehog food, meaty pet food and chopped unsalted peanuts with only water to drink.  If a hedgehog is seen to be struggling to walk it should be contained somewhere warm indoors and the helpline 01584 890801 called. Alternatively www.britishhedgehogs.org.uk where a guide to helping hedgehogs can be found.
