The Autumn 2005 cover of Grange Community News has the headline “Grangetown Festival 2005” with a photograph of the Welsh Piping Society leading the Carnival parade.
The text reads “Grangetown Community Concern would like to thank all those who supported our Festival Week this year. The Welsh Piping Society, who have done so well this year, winning competitions in Scotland and Ireland, led the parade. Once again our thanks go to St Patrick’s Primary School and CIAC Cheerleaders who always support us by taking part in the Parade. This year Grangetown After School Club took part as well. The Sports Day at Cardiff Athletic Stadium was very successful with Grangetown Primary School winning the Shield and St Patrick’s Primary School as runners up, Ninian Park Primary School came third and St Paul’s Primary School were fourth. This year to celebrate the Centenary of Cardiff as a City and 50 years as the Capital, the County Council presented a special cup to the winners.
The School concert with the four Primary Schools was well attended and it is only when you see these children perform that you realise the talent that we have in our Community. As for Carnival Day itself, yet again we were lucky with the weather and hope that it was not too hot for everyone. We hope that all the stallholders had a good day, as the money raised by each organisation goes to further their work in the community.”

Thanks are also given for sound system providers, and to all who supported “this great day”. Notice is given that the AGM of Grangetown Community Concern will take place on Monday 24 October at St Dyfrig and St Samson Church Hall, Pentre Street, Grangetown.

The cover also features a crown with the words “unsung heroes”. This is logo for the Queen’s Golden Jubilee Award for voluntary service by groups in the community, which was awarded to Grangetown Community Concern in 2003.

Grange Community News is a community newspaper produced by Grangetown Community Concern. Grangetown Community Concern is a voluntary group, partly funded by Cardiff 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 organises the week-long Grangetown Festival in June. It 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 been responsible for arranging an annual carol service.

The group was renamed Grangetown Community Action in 2014.
