On Friday 9th May at Grange Primary School, Greencastle Area Residents Group held a well-attended Annual General Meeting. The review from the preceding year outlined an increase in membership and a healthy financial status for the organisation at end of year. One of the major successes highlighted from the previous year was the ‘Down Memory Lane’ exhibition which ran over two days at Grange primary school displaying a vast array of cultural and historical memorabilia from Greencastle, past and present.
Following annual reports from Chairperson and Treasurer a new GARG committee was elected. Diarmuid Cahill, Hugo Thompson, Denise Cunningham and Susanna Harper were re-elected into the positions of Chair, Vice Chair, Secretary, and Treasurer respectively.
In addition to these positions it was agreed to establish a new role for a PR officer responsible for communications with various stakeholders and leading campaigns on behalf of the group. Christine Gibson was proposed and elected into this role. Additional Ordinary members of the committee were elected as Sean Cunningham, Adrian Fitzsimmons, Joan Thompson, Niall Cunningham, Rory Thompson, Emma O’Rourke. GARG would like to thank all former, continuing and new members for their dedication and support for Greencastle.
GARG would like to extend a warm welcome to members of the public and advises that new membership is open to all. More details are available at www.greencastlecodown.org. Thanks also on behalf of GARG to Grange Primary School for the use of the hall on the evening for the meeting.
