The RGA, was established in 1988 for the purpose of coordinating villagers’ responses to the expansion of Redditch towards Rowney Green and the proposed Alvechurch by-pass. 
It continues to look after the interests of the village in accordance with its Constitution.

There are regular meetings where everyone is welcome to discuss village issues. Meeting dates and minutes are published in the Calling Oak and on the village website.
