Description

A poster advertising the Teddy Bears Picnic with Taffy the Clown at St Samson’s Church, Pentre Street at 1.30 pm on Tuesday 17 June. This was organised by Grangetown Community Concern as part of Grangetown Festival Week. The archive also contains receipts for sweets for the children, and a record of a payment of £45 for Taffy. St Samson’s Church was also the site of the Open Air service the previous Sunday.

This is one of a set of five A4 posters advertising the 2003 Grangetown Festival Week. Other posters in the set were ‘Carnival Day’, ‘Open Air Service’, ‘Inter Schools Sports’ and ‘Past and Present Baseball Game’. Other events during the festival included an art exhibition and a school concert.

Grangetown Community Concern is a voluntary group, partly funded by Cardiff Council but almost entirely run by volunteers. It was established in 1977 and is a registered charity. The group was set up as an umbrella group for other voluntary organisations with its aims and objectives to provide and encourage services for all age groups, with a particular focus on older people.

The group organises the week-long Grangetown Festival in June. It also organised lunches and trips for older people, and produced a quarterly local newspaper. The organisation has awarded community cups to children from local primary schools who have shown community spirit and has also been responsible for arranging an annual carol service.

The group was renamed Grangetown Community Action in 2014.
