Grangetown’s new-look community newspaper will be relaunched at the end of the week.
Now called Grangetown News, the first edition will be a 12-page full-colour tabloid newspaper. 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.
As well as more local news stories, there are features on local businesses and also sport. The paper has also been designed by Grangetown residents.
Online versions of the features – with more photos – will also be put up later on this website, as well as a downloadable version of the paper.
But it’s not to late if you want to get involved:
- We are looking for volunteer deliverers – if you can deliver the paper to your street (which in many cases should take a few minutes), let us know. There is an online form here to let us know if you can help – and where
- Let us know if you are a local shop or business happy to stock copies of the free paper. It will be available too from Grangetown Library and Hub. Email firstname.lastname@example.org
- If you’d like to contribute, if you have an ideas, or would like to get involved in writing, photos or production (those with knowledge of InDesign software would be particularly welcome!), there is a meeting to look forward to the autumn edition at Grangetown Hub on Thursday 12th May, 6pm.
