The first meeting in 2015 of the Uppingham Business Forum demonstrated some of the many reasons why the Uppingham  Business Community is acquiring a national profile for its collective effort to promote the town and enhance its physical and virtual trading offer.

Crafts, trades and professions present at the meeting included Publicans; Hoteliers; Manufacturers; Book, Furniture, Gift and Wool Retailing; Tourism; UK Travel and Transport; International Travel, Pest Control, Water Purification; Building; Mobile App Development; Law, Childcare, Hairdressing, Cabinet Making and  Entrepreneurship. Special guest was International Lawyer Stephen Rosen who answered questions on debt recovery, late payments, the judiciary and legal trends.

Among the many decisions made was one to support the creation of an Uppingham Virtual High Street, linked to the Uppingham Webcam and an Uppingham Smart Phone App.  It was also agreed that the Forum organise a police led retailer training event on personal and business security and offer certificated training in First Aid.  The Forum further agreed formal feedback to Rutland County Council expressing concerns about a draft planning document seeking to regulate the design of shop frontages.     

Finally the Forum nominated three retailers to serve on the Uppingham Town Centre and Business Zone Plan Task Group. The final membership of the Task Group will be approved at the February Board meeting of Uppingham First.

A well attended meeting of the Uppingham Neighbourhood Forum,  held on Tuesday January 20th, unanimously resolved to enhance community safety in Uppingham Town Centre by supporting a decision of the Board of the Uppingham First Community Partnership to enter into a data sharing agreement with Leicestershire Police.

From April 2015, day time and overnight data from the  Uppingham Webcam will be recorded onto a hard drive, stored for a limited period, and made available to the police in the event of it witnessing any anti social or criminal incident. Final details will be agreed with the Police at a meeting in early March.
