About Gretna Area Business Forum

Our Vision

Gretna Area Business Forum was formed in the wake of the foot and mouth outbreak.
Our vision for the future is a community with a robust economy and a healthy thriving and enterprising population.
The Forum welcomes all businesses in the Gretna Area to attend our meetings that take place on the first Wednesday of each month in the Richard Greenhow Centre, Central Avenue, Gretna at 7.30pm and look forward to welcoming you there.

  • To regenerate and revitalise the economic, social, and cultural life of the township of Gretna and its surrounding area
  • To enhance and reinforce people's pride and confidence in their own community
