A photograph of the Grangetown Carnival cup-winning float on North Clive Street, Grangetown, Cardiff. Other photographs in this set show the parade turning into Lucknow Street, towards St Patrick's RC Primary School. The Carnival was the culmination of the week-long Grangetown Festival in June. The event was sponsored by CBDC (Cardiff Bay Development Corporation) which was set up in 1987 to redevelop Cardiff Bay. This photograph is dated by Glamorgan Archives as 1980s-1990s.

The week-long Grangetown Festival in June was organised by Grangetown Community Concern, a voluntary group partly funded by the 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 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 arranged an annual carol service. The group was renamed Grangetown Community Action in 2014.
