By Andrew Griffin, Uppingham.
It suddenly occurred to me that the wonderful displays in various shops and businesses around the town in support of Remembrance will not be seen again in our lifetimes and there ought to be a record. I have put together this little slideshow in an attempt to preserve it and to remember those who gave their lives for our freedom. Although I have not yet completed the Poppy Appeal count, I am convinced that the efforts by these businesses have substantially affected the amount of money raised for the Royal British Legion

Thanks to everyone who completed a questionnaire, to provide your views about the possible future priorities for our lovely village. About 50% of the questionnaires were returned.
The questionnaires have been analysed by an independent company and they have provided us with the results.
The N.P. steering group have arranged to hold 2 public feedback sessions. This is to enable residents to hear the feedback. It is also an opportunity to ask questions and to hear about the next step in the progress towards the final Neighbourhood Plan Document.
The first session will be held on SUNDAY 2nd DECEMBER at 3pm. The next on WEDNESDAY. 5th DECEMBER at 7 pm.
Any questions please contact Nicky Lyttleton, Chairman, or myself, Joanne Beaver, Vice Chairman. firstname.lastname@example.org, or any committee member.
