Feb 28th: I am delighted that Rutland’s Barbara Crellin has been awarded an MBE today by HRH The Princess Royal. Richly deserved! Barbara has done much for swimming, rugby, sport, education and well-being in Rutland.
Polio is still a debilitating illness in parts of the world. Uppingham Rotary held a fundraising static bike ride at The Falcon Hotel and raised over £1,000. Well done to all who took part!
Feb 6th: The Queen’s Green Canopy is growing & there is time to add to #Rutland’s total before March.
