Street project a hit in Grangetown
The dull winter months were lifted by a fun street scheme for young people living in Grangetown.
Grangetown activ8 followed on from the successful Back2Basics project run last year for Taff tenants, who said they wanted more to do in the area.
Following the findings of a Communities First survey it emerged that 80% of residents felt the most pressing local need was for more facilities for young people.
With that in mind and thanks to funding from Communities First, Grangetown activ8 ran free street-based sessions with the Safer Wales Re-Start Bus, a double-decker packed with activities and manned by youth workers and the Doctor Bike team, who fix bicycles free of charge.
Cardiff South Neighbourhood Management Partnership supported the Dr Bike sessions by Grangetown Play Centre by donating £1,200 of free bike safety equipment, including reflectors.
Young people attending the sessions at the play centre also filled in questionnaires to give their say on what they want to see more of in Grangetown, such as trips or more play facilities.
