Any resident in the Goring Gap is welcome to join the group in support of its aims to help develop the Genie range of free, useful community newsletters and their distribution.

The three founding members and administrators are residents of Goring-on-Thames:

Ron Bridle - Chairman
Mary Carr  - Treasurer
Bryan Urbick - Secretary

Other members of the group compile and edit the various newsletters, help on the technical and production side and manage the correspondence and website.

Each newsletter has its own editor, who passes the completed document to the administrators to be emailed out. Only the administrators have access to the email database.  The editorial content of Genie newsletters is relevant to the villages in or near the Goring Gap.
