Description

The cover of the summer 2005 edition of Grange Community News has a drawing of a clown and gives the Programme of Events for Grangetown Festival 2005, running from Sunday 12 June to Sunday 19 June. The events were:
- Open Air Church Service in the grounds of St Dyfrig and St Samson Church, Pentre Street with Strawberry Teas served afterwards (Sunday)
- Inter-School Sports at Leckwith Stadium (Wednesday)
- Schools Concert at St Paul’s Church, Paget Street (Thursday)
- Carnival day at Grange Gardens, including arena events, rides, mega slide and stalls with something for everyone (Saturday)
- Evening of 50s and 60s music with The Rascals and Dave on Disco at the Conservative Club, Corporation Road (Sunday)
Individuals, pubs and clubs are invited to have a stall or put on an event, with the enticing message “You never know, it might be fun!!!”

The cover also features a crown with the words “unsung heroes”. This is logo for the Queen’s Golden Jubilee Award for voluntary service by groups in the community, which was awarded to Grangetown Community Concern in 2003.

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 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.
