What is Common Ground Bray?
We are a members based group dedicated to promoting a co-operative, mindful and ecological lifestyle. Membership is open to all who share this goal.
Where are we located?
We have a multi-purpose building located at the old Beverly Bags Factory on Church Terrace, Bray – just off the main street here.
What is our Ethos?
Common Ground Bray is a co-operative, community based project in north Wicklow that seeks an alternative to the consumer-fuelled ethos that dictates much of the modern world. We are unaffiliated and self funded and value the independence that that gives us.
We want to create a network of people that will have a positive impact on the community of Bray and it’s environs and that reflects the diverse and multi-cultural nature of contemporary Ireland. We want to support our members in coming together in meaningful and energising ways that enhance our experience of being a community.
What are our aims? 

We aim to provide a network and a space to

  • Help people support each other in sharing their skills and talents
  • source healthy and sustainable food
  • encourage environmentally friendly approaches to contemporary living
  • support a mindful, ethical and caring community

We hope you will join us in making this a reality!  Check our ‘Join Us‘ page to sign up!


We are run as an open, consensus-based, organisation

Common Ground consists of a growing number of members. There are no specific requirements for membership and your interaction can range from simply availing of the information we share on our various networks to getting stuck in and organising your own initiatives, workshops and events.

The organisation of our activities is regulated through an open members’ meeting every two weeks. If you have an idea of something you would like Common Ground to get involved with; or if you just want to come along, meet other members, and see how things are run; then if you are a member you are very welcome to attend these. Please look at our Facebook Page for information about when this is happening.

See here for more information about our members’ meetings.

If you wish to make a proposal for an idea about CG, then please get in touch for more information about how to do this, as you’ll need to submit your proposal prior to the meeting itself.

See our Contact Page for how to contact Common Ground
