About

Hello!  We run Inksplott and we’re delighted that you’ve visited our site.

Hia, I’m Lynne Thomas and I set up Inksplott in March 2016 to capture and report all the wonderful things that are going on in the land of the speedbump; Splott (Y Sblot yn y Gymraeg).  I started to work on a community project down in Grangetown and saw their resident-run newsletter and website and I thought, ‘this is brilliant, I’ll volunteer for the Splott version!’.  After two hours of fruitless Googling, I started to investigate how to set up my own.  Inksplott was born!  After Inksplott came Keep Splott Tidy, a resident-led initiative which we set up to help make our local area even better.

Hia, I’m Louise Clarke and I support Inkplott by going out there and talking to people about what they’re doing and getting them interested in what we’re doing and I feed into the web development. I also take loads of photos of community events and am secetary of Keep Splott Tidy.

Hia, I’m Peter Durrant, Treasurer of Keep Splott Tidy.  I live in Splott and was passionate about the area, so I was delighted when a residents’ group started up.  I want to get more of an ethnic demographic involved in our litter picks.

So hia, this is the team!  We profile local businesses, interview local characters, cover local news and let people know what’s happening right on their doorstep.

If you have a story to tell, are planning an event, or you run a business and would like to be featured, get in touch via Twitter @inksplott or Facebook https://www.facebook.com/inksplott and I’ll get back to you as soon as we can.  If you’re tweeting anything relevant to Splott, please remember to hashtag #splott and I’ll re-tweet you.

There’s lots of great stuff happening in Splott and I aim to shout about it!

Lynne.
