The High Garrett Community Association's aim is to promote the High Garrett neighbourhood and the interests of it's residents.
This web site has been created solely for the benefit of the residents of High Garrett and as such membership will be restricted to those living in the area.
To check if your home falls within the area see http://www.essexinfo.net/high-garrett-community-association/general-information/boundary-of-high-garrett/
High Garrett is an unparished community within the Braintree District, we therefore have no means of collectively putting our views across on matters that directly affect the area where we live.. We also have no access to funds, available to parished areas, for improvements etc.
The formation of this association is an attempt to get High Garrett recognised again as a separate and individual community, without suffering the red tape and formalities that a parish council would involve.
Whether it is successful or doomed to failure from the start is dependent on you. The web site is just a tool for communication and hopefully many residents will find time to contribute.
By becoming a member whether active or passive you will be able to access the whole site and have the opportunity to at least read others opinions and suggestions for improving the area where you live.
The web site also gives you the opportunity to promote your own interests whether it be promoting your business locally or some service you can offer. May be you have some social event or club, you belong to, or are considering starting and wish to advertise the fact. The possibilities are most probably endless. I will try and accommodate what every you may feel is appropriate.
The site currently consists of a public area and a members only area.
Public Area - Noticeboard, Classified Ads (free to Members), Local Links ( Links to local business sites etc.), General Information (any information about the area which would be of interest to visitors of the site) and a link to the local Neighbourhood Watch web site.
Members Area - Discussions, Photo Album, Local History, Community Projects and Local Planning , Social Clubs/Events and Local Business promotion.
Other areas will be added when required.
I hope that you find the site useful and look forward to your contributions.
Membership is free so join today and have your say.
