A campaign for our district. For everyone interested in contributing ideas to re-invigorate this beautiful Adelaide Hills township.
2040 Movie Night (November 2019)
On Friday 29 November 2019 something special happened in Basket Range. The Imagine Uraidla Sustainable Action Group hosted a very successful movie night. The event was organised by Anna, Tina and Paul with support from the rest of the committee. Wine was donated by local wine makers and food was cooked by Stall 1195. We watched the movie 2040, have you seen it? It struck a chord, it was so relevant, so real, so achievable. We had guests from as far away as Middleton and were surrounded by so many locals of all ages. The energy was phenomenal. At the end of the movie guests could express interest about solar and battery bulk buying opportunities. The long goal, to have our very own micro grid.

Thank you to everyone who came to the Community Forum on 25 June 2019.
Your input, energy and collaboration was outstanding and we can’t wait for you to be part of the next stage of the journey: making the prioritised actions happen! The report is now live, see all the details below.
The Community Forum Outcomes Report is now live!
It’s quick and easy to read and gives you a great snapshot of what happened on the night.
If you made it along you might even spot yourself and if you couldn’t make it you can have a sticky beak to see who came.
Scroll to the back of the report for the tables which contain all the ideas which the community developed. We’ve included a list of ideas group champions, so take a look for your name.
Imagine Uraidla is here to support you with communicating and connecting with others but making ideas happen is up to you.
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.
