The original Cathays website pioneered by the late Paul Byers (passed away in late 2016) with a mission to highlight data for people to use across Cathays.
This is the Cathays umbrella body which is responsible for the four quarterly events to coincide with the winter, spring, summer and autumn seasons. It has become a regular staple with events like Cathays Fair which usually hosts 40-60 stalls each year and attracts 1000’s of people from the locale.
Cathays Community Centre:
A long term established entity in Cathays, starting off as a roller coasting rink, bingo hall etc. and now hosts all types of events for ALL ages in the community (not just in Cathays – yet people come from all over Cardiff and South Wales!)
Cathays Heritage Library:
Our local library has become heavily involved with local activities including Reading Challenges, hosting the ‘Celebrating Cathays’ photography competition, being a regular stall at the yearly Cathays Fair and hosting part of the Cathays Xmas Community Carols each December!
Cardiff Rivers Group:
CRG: Cardiff Rivers Group is renowned throughout Cardiff for its blitz of the rivers – pulling metal, waste, tampons, plastics, dead sheep etc. out of the many rivers and waterway systems of Cardiff. CRG hits a different part of Cardiff several times a month – including specific locations in Cathays such as feeder near the Bute Castle and up at Blackweir where our residents have joined them on many voluntary clean up efforts.
