Who are we?
The RoathCardiff website 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 also tweet from @RoathCardiff, where we pump out a vast amount of information about the local area and what people are up to. We suggest following us for updates.
Who is behind the site?
There’s a team of four of us. We do it because we’re interested in the local area. We are Matt Appleby, Geraldine Nichols, Huw Thomas and Nicole Rugman. Since the blog began we have had invaluable technical support from Nicole, our resident geek.
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, and to Jess Best, who contributed articles from 2011-12.
When did it start?
It started in June 2011 after a chat in the Albany pub!
