Community Gateway

Community Gateway storytelling event a great success!

29 October 2015

On Saturday 24th October 2015 Community Gateway, in association with the Grange Pavilion Project, held a storytelling event to celebrate the opening of the Grange Bowls Pavilion as a community hub for local residents.

The idea behind the event was to collect stories from local residents about Grangetown, past and present, and display them in song and print ‘shingles’ that were hung in a specially constructed booth for others to view and read.
The event was also used to gather ideas from local residents as to how they would like to use the pavilion in the next 12 months. 
These community-led ideas for the Pavilion and Green will be piloted through pop-up events, community workshops, and a wide variety of classes, training, network and information sharing sessions.
The pilot activities will then help the development of a business case for a potential Community Asset Transfer of the Pavilion from Cardiff Council to Grangetown communities, and a long term redevelopment of the Pavilion and Green.
Cardiff Council are looking for users of Grange Gardens to complete a short survey to inform future development of the park. The surveys can be accessed here: 


The survey will close on Friday 20th November.

If you have any ideas as to how you would like to see the pavilion used in the next 12 months please contact the Community Gateway team:
