Thank you to everyone who came to the Community Forum on 25 June 2019.

Just over six years ago, after a succession of business closures, the local hotel poured its last drink on 15 August 2012. This brought the community to the realisation that they were losing much more than local businesses. They were losing the potential of a thriving town for future generations.
In 2013 the picturesque village of Uraidla in the Adelaide Hills was close to becoming a ghost town. With the exception of Saturday afternoon bowls home games, you could walk the main street and not bump into another soul. Known for its cherries, berries and vegetable produce together with a strong sporting tradition, Uraidla, a town that once considered itself self-sufficient, sustaining an IGA supermarket, butcher, two hairdressers and a petrol station, was feeling the impact of longer city trading hours and a changing demographic.
Drawing inspiration from the UK Pub is the Hub movement, in March 2014 more than 220 people from Uraidla and surrounding hills settlements crammed into the Uraidla Football clubrooms to share their views on the future of their town. An amazing response given, Uraidla itself only has a population of 460 people.
Within five years, a grass roots community campaign to bring business back to their town has seen the sleepy villages of Uraidla and Summertown transform into a food and wine hub of the Adelaide Hills and with it, a rise in community spirit.
We can’t wait to see what the future holds for our district.
