Grangetown Community Concern organised a Carnival and Fete as the culmination of the week long Grangetown Festival in June 2003.

The plan of Grange Gardens for the Grangetown Festival Fete, shows the position of attractions and amenities for the fete around the fixtures of the fountain, war memorial, bandstand, rose garden and children’s playground. Another plan in the archive shows only the arena, St John Ambulance, a caravan, portable toilets and the Grangetown Community Concern stand. Here, other stalls, a bouncy castle, mega slide, coconut shy and children’s roundabout have been added.

The archive also includes 13 forms requesting a stall, from groups including the Salvation Army, 9th Cardiff St Dyfrig & St Samson’s Brownies, CIACS Cheerleaders, Grangetown Baptist Church, 9th Cardiff Guides, Grangetown PTA and Clydach St Day Centre. The plan also shows the presence of 13th Scouts, ‘1st Cardiff’ and Fitzalan School.

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.
