The winter 2005 cover of Grange Community News features the headline “Seasons Greetings to all our readers and thank you to all who have supported us this year.”

It announces the Christmas Carol service at St Patrick’s Church, Pentrebane Street on Friday 2 December. “Please come along and support the four local primary schools.” (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.)

It also announces that the Christmas Meal for older people “will be held on Tuesday 27 December. The cost will be £2 per person.”

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.
