A group of local residents who want to spread the positive vibe around the town helping each other and all the great causes in and around Barry.

Early 2017 the original members of DIAG quickly realised what a huge and positive impact we had on the community. We instantly knew that we could turn our attention to other things beyond the battle against the incinerator.

A few things we’re great at


You would not believe how therapeutic cleaning up a beach or a park is and of course the end result is the place looks so much better and sets a great example to others.


Walking, running and cycling – we have some amazing places to experience the outdoors and get some fresh air. 
Plus we have nearly 4 miles of coastline!


There are lots of smaller groups and events that take place but don’t get the exposure they deserve. We’d like to showcase some of Barry’s hidden gems.


Got a little gig or something going on that everyone needs to know about? Just give us a message and we’ll spread the word on our website and social media.

Join the crowd…

Our Facebook group is open to everyone who loves Barry and wants to come and celebrate everything about the largest town in Wales!
