Beautiful Barry is a group of residents promoting positive ideas and activity in Barry.
Founded in April 2017 by members of DIAG – docks incinerator action group – we soon realised the collective efforts of a few people was resulting in some great achievements and we proposed to live on beyond the fight against the incinerator.
It started as a simple Facebook group and most of our engagement still happens there. New members were quickly attracted by the positive posts, without any promotion from the admins. As the group is public, many of the posts made were by the members of the public.
Local photos were very popular but we like to support the smaller and lesser known groups with their events. The group kept away from any negative posts and also things like buying and selling items and lost/found etc as these are already well served on other Facebook pages for the area.
We would like to work with local government, residents, traders and community groups to ensure Barry is the best place it possibly can be for those who live and work here and of course those who visit here.
If you are interested in joining Beautiful Barry then please see this page for more information. It doesn’t make a difference if you only have an hour a month to spare, everyone is welcome.
