Description

Order of Service for the Grangetown Festival Week Open Air Service at St Dyfrig & Samson’s Church on Sunday 15 June 2003. The cover of this Order of Service shows the courtyard of the church at the junction of Pentre Street and Dinas Place. The service was organised by Grangetown Community Concern (GCC) as part of Grangetown Festival Week. A poster advertising the event is also included in the archive. The archive also shows that the GCC made a £30 donation to the church.

The church of St Dyfrig and St Sampson dates from 1911, but only a small part of what was intended - a section of what would have been the nave – was built and it was left unfinished. The dedication was extended in 1969 to commemorate the church of St Dyfrig after its demolition. www.coflein.gov.uk/en/site/14224/details/st-samsons-church-pentre-gardens-grangetown

The service was part of the 2003 Grangetown Festival Week. Other events during the festival included a carnival and fete, Teddy Bears Picnic (also at this site), inter-schools sports, baseball game, school concert and an art exhibition.

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.
