Description

The cover of Grange Community News, Autumn 2004, has images from Grangetown Festival Week held in June 2004.

“Grangetown Community Concern would like to thank all those who supported our recent Festival Week. Special thanks go to St Patrick’s School who are always there in the forefront of the parade, also the CIACS, Fordthorne, St John Ambulance and last but not least our old friends the Welsh Piping Society.”

“We would also like to thank St Paul’s, Ninian Park and Grangetown Primary Schools for taking part in the Sports Day at Leckwith Stadium and the Festival of Song along with St Patrick’s. The Festival of Song is an event that no one should miss as it is a very entertaining evening. We hope that the stallholders had a good day, as all their profits go to further their own work during the coming months.”

The articles are accompanied by images from the event.

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 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.
