Christmas in Uppingham Retail Competition Winners


Miranda Jones, Chair of Uppingham Town Partnership would like to thank the High Sheriff of Rutland, Sarah Furness for taking time in the afternoon and early evening to visit the businesses in town that made this year’s Christmas in Uppingham such a spectacular success.

The High Sheriff had been amazed at the excitement around Uppingham as the community strolled into town to witness the lights switch on, the carol singing and various artists performing the length and breadth of the high street. Mayor, Alec Crombie joined Sarah and Rob Persani from Rutland Radio to countdown for the lights switch on.

Miranda is pleased to share the results of the retailers’ competition following Sarah’s visits around town:
