Local newspaper

The Grange News
The Grange News

A revamp of local newspaper The Grange News.

The idea

The local newsletter has been produced in Grangetown since 1977 and is delivered by volunteers to over 6,000 residents three times per year.

Community Gateway were planning on developing a local paper to update residents about Cardiff University activities in Grangetown but instead have worked with Grangetown Community Action to develop the existing Grangetown newsletter.


Community Gateway and fellow engagement project Community Journalism worked closely with Grangetown Community Action (GCA) and local residents to develop the existing Grangetown newsletter into a full-colour community newspaper entitled Grangetown News. Community Gateway has supported several issues of the newspaper, featuring many stories and advertising upcoming projects and events.

Next steps

We hope to align this project with the Communications Champions project and Business Forum by supporting local young people to write positive news stories about local Grangetown businesses.
