The Roath Cardiff site is a place for local news, views and events from this wonderful area of the Welsh capital.

We will be sharing when Roath makes the news, what residents of Roath are up to and interesting events going on in and around the area. We’ll also have some local history and nice pictures for good measure.

If you’ve got something you’d like to see on the site just get in touch and we’ll do our best to feature it.

We’re also closely linked with the Roath Cardiff twitter feed, which pumps out a vast amount of information about the local area and what people are up to. We suggest following it for updates.

Who is behind the site?

There’s a team of three of us. We do it because we’re interested in the local area. We are Matt Appleby, Geraldine Nichols and Huw Thomas. We have to give a big thank you to Ed Walker (formerly of yourcardiff) who was on the original team before moving up to London.

When did it start?

It started in June 2011 after a chat in the Albany pub.

Can I get something featured?

Sure, just drop us a line. We’re all ears to anything Roath related.
