VCS Cymru & the Adventure Playground

Between 1914 and today, Cardiff has had a history of a volunteering culture. VCS Cymru is a part of this volunteer culture, and was established in 1964, right in the middle of the time period that the Chronicle Project spans, which means that VCS Cymru has both been influenced by volunteering in the past and has helped to shape how volunteering takes form in Cardiff today.

One of the most interesting projects of VCS Cymru was the construction of an adventure playground, built in 1972. This project, completely volunteer-driven, exemplifies the bringing together of members of the community to work towards a common goal.
