Residents have a chance to take a look at some of the projects being set up as part of Cardiff University’s ongoing Community Gateway programme.
Love Grangetown will during the afternoon of Saturday 23rd April at the Grange Gardens Bowls Pavilion showcase many of the projects – and give you a chance to talk to those involved.
A similar event was held last year during the early days of the programme and some of those who took part then will be involved in morning workshops.
But between 1pm and 4pm, it’s open to everyone to explore a few of the ideas being developed, take part in activities or just enjoy a chat over some tea and cake!
“All residents are welcome to come along and find out more about what the project has achieved in the past 12 months and have their say on what comes next,” said a COmmunity Gateway spokesman.
“Stalls will also offer fun activities for adults and children, and free tea and cake will be provided.”
The bowls pavilion itself is the subject of one of the projects, which sees students developing proposals for remodelling the 1960s building, with it being taken over by a local community group.
Altogether, there are nine project themes being developed:
- Clean streets and green spaces which includes community gardens at Grange Bowls Pavilion and Pentre Gardens
- Communication without barriers which includes a Philosophy Café group, helping to revamp the Grangetown News community paper and developing media champions.
- Community meeting places which involves the Grange Bowls Pavilion.
- Friendly and accepting community which includes a street party idea and supporting and developing the Grangetown Festival and Carnival.
- Healthy and active Grangetown – lots of ideas here already from walking groups to affordable food and cookery classes
- Activities and places for young people – includes an urban honey project and ideas such as a basketball team
- Road respect involves developing safer routes to school for Grangetown children, especially as the area gets busier
- Safer Grangetown – there has already been a successful Safety Week but more ideas could follow
- Work and shop in Grangetown – better promotion of local shops and businesses, developing a business forum and shop local campaign.
