Uppingham's economic and social success as a vibrant market town is the subject of a presentation at a national conference in Bristol this week. Uppingham Town Mayor Cllr David Ainslie and Uppingham First Director and Town Councillor Ron Simpson have been invited to address a National Association of Local Councils (NALC) event entitled  'Making Localism Work'.

The pair will be talking about the town's achievements and the challenges it has faced. Following their presentation they will be conducting a question and answer session with the audience on the town's aspirations for the future and the lessons that can be learned from the Uppingham experience.

Uppingham is the only Market Town in Rutland to hold 'quality' status and the General Power of Competence, allowing it additional powers.  Pictured is the town's heritage market place. Uppingham has this week won the 2014 East Midlands in Bloom competition. Last month it was announced that its Heritage Trail had won regional recognition and reached the national finals of the 2014 Town Alive Awards.

A date for the much awaited Judicial Review of the Uppingham Neighbourhood Plan has been set. The case being put forward by developer Larkfleet and the response of Rutland County Council will be heard by the courts on November 13th/14th 2014.  Officers of Rutland County Council together with some members of Uppingham Town Council have agreed to attend the hearing.

The hearing is  conducted in public and is expected to attract national attention given that, if Larkfleet were to succeed, almost every Neighbourhood Plan in the country would be impacted.

Classics in Uppingham 2014, a charity event in aid of the Children's Air Ambulance has been declared a huge success by all involved. Uppingham Market Place and High Street was bathed in sunshine for the bi-annual musical event featuring a backcloth of classic and vintage vehicles.

A rolling programme of entertainment from 11am to 3pm offered classical music and singing from Uppingham School, Uppingham Community College and Uppingham Church of England School. The Uppingham Jazz & Soul Band launched the programme with the Uppingham School Pipers later adding their unique sound. The event was formally opened by  Uppingham Town Mayor, Cllr David Ainslie, himself a classic vehicle owner. Sound system was provided by local company Rocky Road Music.

Principal organisers were members of the Rotary Club of Uppingham who ran a raffle associated with the event. Their initiative raised over £2k  for Air Ambulance funds.
