This letter from John C Lomax, Chair of Grangetown Community Concern, to the Muslim School shows the perils of sharing a meeting room. It states, “We have had a complaint from the Art Class that meets in the upstairs on a Monday morning with regards to chewing gum being stuck on the underside of the tables. This is affecting their clothing and we ask that you please make sure that the boys deposit their chewing gum in the bins provided.” Letter is dated 26 June 2003.

Another document in this archive shows that the Art, Painting for Pleasure class of Grangetown Art Group used the upstairs room at Clydach Street Day Centre on Monday mornings from 10.00am to midday from 30 June until 8 September 2003 “for the purposes of painting and drawing”.

Grangetown Community Concern ran a day centre at Clydach Street from 1985 to 2005 and let local groups use the rooms.

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.
