WWI Commemoration Bed

New willow poppies, one for each of Uppingham’s fallen. Six in the first two years. Sadly many more to come next year and the year after. Poppy bunting knitted by the WI.

There’s also a fabulous and timely display by Uppingham In Bloom on Ayston Road, there’s also commemorative wicker poppies elsewhere in town to remember the fallen.

WW1 WEEKEND – great event at Easton on the Hill on Saturday, really nice balance of remembrance reenactment and history.  Also a parade took place from Oakham to Langham, soldiers marched from Oakham onto Melton when recruited.  Had a great day at Easton on the Hill’s commemoration event on Saturday, from the fly pasts of the Tiger Moth and Pitts Special to the re-enactors and the excellent exhibition in the village hall, well done to everyone involved.  The service which began the day had good support too.
