Your Opinions Matter!

Dear Uffculme Community,

I hope this message finds you well. We are delighted to welcome all our new subscribers to the Save the Ostler Inn Campaign newsletter; your platform to share your thoughts and shape the future of the Ostler Inn.

To find out our latest news or see past newsletters you can also see them here.

Your Opinions Matter:

The responses to our questionnaire have been nothing short of inspiring. Thanks to all those that have given us their thoughts already. So far, the overwhelming majority of participants have voiced their strong desire to see the Ostler Inn saved. It’s clear that our community values this cherished establishment.

But that’s not all; the feedback also highlights two other key themes so far:

  1. Delicious Food: The majority of respondents have expressed a keen interest in having delicious food served at the Ostler Inn. We’re all for satisfying our taste buds!
  2. Family-Friendly Pub: Uffculme residents have made it evident that they want the Ostler Inn to be a welcoming, family-friendly village pub. Creating a warm and inclusive environment is a shared goal.

Shaping the Future Together:

Beyond these, we’re thrilled to see an influx of innovative ‘community space’ ideas that compliment Uffculme’s current community schemes. The path we choose for the Ostler Inn depends on your valuable input. Could it become a community-owned building, operated by tenants with additional community services or a fully community-owned and operated venture? Each idea brings unique strengths and challenges to the table. Your feedback will play a pivotal role in shaping our strategy, deciding on funding options, and successfully securing grants.

Remember, this is about the collective vision of Uffculme as a community. The Ostler Inn cannot cater to a select few; we’re here to shape an establishment that aligns with the priorities of the village community as a whole.

Be Heard:

In the end, all these plans and ideas mean nothing without your voice. We urge you to participate in the questionnaire and encourage your friends, family, and neighbours to do the same. Your input is the driving force behind the Ostler Inn’s future.


Thank you for your unwavering support. Together, we can save the Ostler Inn and create a space that truly reflects the spirit of Uffculme.

Warm regards, Save The Ostler Inn Campaign Steering Group
