Edition of Grange Community News published in Summer 2002. The cover article is about the Grangetown Festival Week from Sunday 16 June, culminating in a Grand Fete at Grange Gardens on Saturday 22 June 2002. “There will be various stalls, including food stores, displays, roundabouts, bouncy castles etc., something for everyone.” Organisations are invited to book a stall to raise funds. Thanks go to Hazel School of Dance who put on a wonderful Dance Extravaganza in March to raise funds.

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.
