A copy of a letter from Joan Gallagher, Secretary of Grangetown Community Concern, to Alan (sic) Michael and his partner to attend events organised as part of the 2003 Grangetown Festival Week. The events were:
- Preview of the Art Exhibition (Friday 13 June)
- Open Air Church Service (Sunday 15 June)
- Inter Schools Sports (Wednesday 18 June)
- Schools Concert (Thursday 19 June)
- Carnival (Saturday 21 June) which was due to leave Virgil Street at 12:00 am, followed by a Fete in Grange Gardens at 1:00 pm.

Other events organised by Grangetown Community Concern during the week were a Teddy Bears Picnic and a ‘Past & Present Baseball Game’.

Alun Michael was MP for Cardiff South & Penarth from 1987 until he resigned in October 2012 to stand as the South Wales Police and Crime Commissioner. The letter is annotated that it was also sent to Cllr L Thorne, Cllr P Perkins, Lorraine Barrett AM and Owen John Thomas AM.

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.
