What is GARG?

What is our Aim?
Our aim is to protect the Greencastle area, both the people and our environment, to improve on what we have as resources and to promote and share our assets to the wider public..
How do we do this?
We do this is through strength in our membership. Working together we can make improvements to our lives here, whether it is making our internet faster or holding a farming festival – we can do it, together. We have so much potential here but need a common ground to communicate with each other and to understand each other’s needs better.
How does it work?
Working at the helm is Christine Gibson (Chair), Eileen Sloan (Vice Chair) and Daiva Shepcar (Treasurer). We are lucky to have another seven ordinary (a term used in Committees) members of the Committee. Together, we will represent you at regular meetings and work with our to make things happen.
