The winter edition was distributed to 6,500 homes, shops and businesses. Copies are also still available in Grangetown Hub and you can view an online copy above.

Now called Grangetown News, the first edition of the 12-page full-colour tabloid newspaper came out in May. Published by Grangetown Community Action, it has been a quarterly magazine format since 1978. With the help of the Community Gateway team and the university’s Community Journalism department, a lively group of residents and students met to produce ideas for the summer edition.
