The Danescourt Community Association, formerly the Danescourt Residents Association has the interests of the residents of Danescourt at it heart. It continues the original aims and over the last 30 years, it has supported, lobbied for, objected to, and been the voice of the residents of Danescourt for many issues.

The DCA also contributes to the North West Cardiff Group (NWCG) along with Creigiau and Pentyrch Community Council, St Fagan’s Community Council, Radyr & Morganstown Society and the Llandaff Civic Society and has links with the Cardiff Civic Society. The NWCG, is a group of mostly professional or retired professional people that want Cardiff to be the best city it can be. Over the last few years it has put in many hours with suggestions and objections to the Local Development Plan, proposals for the metro and is in a constant battle to get the highway and transportation infrastructure improved for the housing developments that are taking place in the north west of Cardiff.

If you would like to play a part in your community please come and join us on the third Monday of every month at St John’s Hall, Danescourt at 8pm. You do not have to join the committee but if you feel you could offer your time please come along. We regularly have the Councillors in attendance and there are often updates from the North West Cardiff Group and the Police And Communities Together (PACT) meetings.

Larry Petterson PDF Print E-mail

Our Chair, Edgar Gibbs has written the following in appreciation of Larry Petterson, whose funeral was held on Thursday 7th March.

Larry worked for the NHS for an amazing 50 years. You would think he would want to step back in his retirement, but he continued to contribute to the community, by becoming a member of the Committee of Danescourt Community Association.

Larry was keen on buses and bus services and he saw a gap in the local bus routes. He felt that that there needed to be a service to the University Hospital of Wales for workers, patients and visitors. Fulfilling that need became Larry's mission and we were all delighted when Larry got a new bus service, number 65, introduced. Within the last year there was a move to remove the service. However, with pressure from the DCA, and a number of local Councillors, we were all pleased when the route was retained. It was renumbered to 101/102 and the route was enhanced.

Personally, I have used this service a number of times and will continue referring to it as Larry's Bus.

Thank you Larry.

Larry Petterson Order of Service
