Uppingham's very first Residents Association, the Beeches Residents Association Ltd (BRA),  has elected one of the community's new town councillors as its Chair for 2015/16. He is local Rotarian Councillor Bill O'Leary (pictured left). The Association's AGM, held on Friday May 15th, elected a strong leadership team of residents with three town councillors holding key positions. Vice Chair is new Town Councillor Mark Shaw, who is involved in the development of the Digital Uppingham project and is the community nominee on the Uppingham Town Centre and Business Zones Plan Task Group. Secretary is Town Councillor and Uppingham First Secretary Ron Simpson. BRA Treasurer is  Roy Farmer.  

Commenting on the AGM, Secretary Ron Simpson said, "The BRA is moving from strength to strength. The Association continues to organise the estate's Neighbourhood Watch Scheme, notice boards, defibrillator and outdoor equipment loan scheme. Such is the experience of the organisation that the Association is able to scrap annual subscriptions from 2016. The Beeches continues to make a significant input into community life in Uppingham".
