Description

Edition of Grange Community News published in Autumn 2001. In this cover article, Grangetown Community Concern thank all who took part in the Annual Festival Week, held the previous June. Holding the Fete in Grange Gardens was felt to be a huge success, as many “likened the day to a proper Village Fete, involving most of the community”. Thanks are given to the four junior schools, teachers, pupils and parents. (The schools were Grangetown Junior School, Ninian Park Primary School, St Patrick’s (RC) Primary School and St Paul’s Church In Wales Primary School.) Also thanked are two councillors (Christine & Brian James) who judged the floats, the New Harbour Lights Jazz Band, CIACS Cheerleaders, the Tae Kwon-Do Club, the Hazel School of Dance (whose Dance Extravaganza raised funds) and members of the Committee, families and friends who helped on the day. The event was sponsored by Cardiff County Council. The article includes a photo of a Grease themed float.

Notice is also given that all are welcome to attend the Grangetown Community Concern AGM at Clydach Street Day Centre on Wednesday 26 September.

Grange Community News is a community newspaper produced by Grangetown Community Concern. 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.
