Meet the Board

  • Steve Austins

    It's across the road from where we live and right at the heart of the community. The vision for the new Grange Pavilion is really exciting and it will be a privilege to play a part in making it happen.
  • Emma Harris

    A community is a group of people sharing a space and environment. The Pavilion is the perfect example of such a place and the perfect space for a community to thrive.
  • Rod McMahon

    I believe the Grangetown Pavilion Project to be a really worthwhile asset to the area that will bring great benefits to the diverse Grangetown community. It has been fantastic to see the project grow from an idea to reality in the last two years and I feel proud to have been involved in it.
  • Deborah Jones

    I became involved with Grange Pavilion because Grangetown feels like an international village which deserves a village hall. As a bonus, I get to know people I might not otherwise have met, and collectively imagine the future building.
  • Ashley Lister

    Member of the Board
    I got involved with Grange Pavilion as I saw it as a great opportunity for residents to take ownership of a much-loved space and give it a new lease of life for the whole community to use!
  • David Reeves

    I am proud and delighted to represent Cardiff Bay Rotary Club on the Pavilion Board. Involved from the very early days, the club is a committed supporting partner to this exciting community project. It is another clear demonstration of the Rotary claim - “We’re for Communities."
  • Lynne Williams

    Member of the Board
    I have worked for a Community Housing Association for 20 year’s. My ambition is about creating good quality homes and communities and building brighter futures for all. In my role as Head of Finance, Taff Housing Association, I am passionate about social change and enjoy working so services can be implemented or developed as to fit the needs of our community. I wanted to offer my financial skills and experience to this exciting project which is in the heart of the community I work for and the city I live in.
  • Greg Pycroft

    Member of the Board
    It's a fantastic, exciting project, a once in a generation kind of thing. It's really important that the new Pavilion reflects the people of Grangetown and benefits the whole community for many years to come.
  • Lizzie Swaffield

    Member of the Board
    I got involved with Grange Pavilion because it's an exciting opportunity to be part of developing a fantastic facility for everyone in the community. Grange Gardens is lovely but it will be even better when we have a great cafe, community centre and place to meet.
  • Moseem Suleman

    Member of the Board
    I've always been passionate about my community and wanted to help. I feel that the Pavilion gets people together and offers us the opportunity to improve together rather than just as individuals and I want to see us improve together.
  • Shakilah Malik

    Member of the Board
    Being a 'Grangetown Girl,' I felt it was my duty and honour to be part of this wonderful project. I want to ensure, together with other residents, we do something meaningful for Grangetown. Something that will become its future history.
  • John Fellows

    The task we gave ourselves in Communities First 10 years ago - to find a neutral community centre for all Grangetown - looks likely to be completed this way!
  • Jazz Austin

    Member of the Board
    The Giving Nature a Home in Cardiff project has historically worked with Grange Pavilion to provide nature-based activities for children and families whilst improving the site for pollinators. We hope to continue this work in the new pavilion by helping to create a wildlife friendly space where children and families can connect with nature in their local area.
