Grangetown residents are being asked to make volunteering a New Year’s resolution – and pledge to do something for their community in 2017.
It is the 40th anniversary of Grangetown Community Action – previously Grangetown Community Concern – and there will be an expanded programme of events and activities local people of all ages can get involved in.
Among projects will be a bumper, new-look Grangetown Festival and Carnival Week in June; a voluntary group is being set up to help organise an occasional street market; Keep Grangetown Tidy moves into its third year of monthly litter-picks; Grangetown News has a group of writers, photographers and deliverers but still needs people – including those interested in helping with advertising for the long-established community newspaper.
More one-off events and projects will also follow during the year – but we’re looking for people who will just pledge to do something in 2017 – share with us a New Year’s resolution to make Grangetown a better place, using the #LoveGrangetown hashtag.
It might become involved in one of the projects above – or something else, learn a new skill or take on a new challenge; or something you’d like to do in a small way in your own street.
Let us know what you want to do – on Twitter or Facebook or email firstname.lastname@example.org
