Community Events

Communities involving council tenants have come to us in the past with the idea of throwing a street party or event to benefit their community. The Tenant Participation team offers a special project grant of up to £1000 for street parties or community projects with the involvement of council tenants.  Council tenants in the past have used the grant to maximise their spend on food, workshops, music or activities on the day. If you think you will be interested in hosting a community event then please don’t hesitate to give us a ring on 02920871777 or send us an email at TenantParticipation@Cardiff.Gov.Uk

Blue January

Christmas is over, New Year’s Eve is over and January is usually seen as the time of year where people tend to make some savings after a surge in spending over the Christmas period. This can lead to people feeling down so the Tenant Participation team decided to visit the City of Cardiff Council’s Community living retirement schemes to organise a few events which brought tenants from across the city over for fun and games to brighten the mood. Tenants from Wheatley Road, Sandown Court & Worcester court met over Clos Y Nant for a Welsh quiz, bingo games & a raffle on the west side of the city while Tenants from Minton Court & Brentwood house met over at Broadlands house in St Mellons for an event on the east side of the city.
A variety of prizes were won by Tenants during the two events as well as friendships started paving the way for the community living schemes to have more opportunities to socialise together under one roof. Tenant Participation also lent a REMPOD pub from Central Library which was great for bringing up discussions of fun times had in January in the past. 
A final Blue Monday event was then organised for our community champion Tenants from across the city as a reward for their engagement with us throughout 2017. It was an opportunity for tenants to meet up and swap stories from the festive period as well as an opportunity to see the REMPOD pub in action with some more bingo & raffles to match.

Regeneration Tour

Tenant Participation met with thirty tenants to show them Cardiff City Council’s regeneration projects across the city. Firstly they visited Trenchard drive in Llanishen to listen to a talk from a regeneration officer about the recently finished construction work. The team then took them to the newly constructed Llandaff North & Gabalfa Hub for a cup of tea and an introduction to events such as the weekly coffee morning and gardening club. Our final destination of the trip was to take the tenants to see the newly renovated Sandown Court where they were given a guided tour from council officers who were involved in the regeneration project.
