'Roundabout', the pastoral magazine for the Gransdens, Waresley and Abbotsley is delivered monthly to each household in the villages - and as from Jun 2019, it is now on the web, with the address roundabout.gransdens.org
There is another magazine, The Villager, covering a wider area including Potton and Biggleswade; it is delivered to most but not all the houses in the villages.
There is an online discussion group called Touchbase for the residents of the Gransdens and neighbouring villages; at present, it can only be viewed by those who have been registered as members of the group. To join, email your request to email@example.com, and say where you live. Only residents of Abbotsley, Waresley or one of the Gransdens can join, though for historic reasons some existing members live outside this region. Group members will normally receive an email for every post, but you can opt to receive regular summaries instead - daily or weekly, say.
There is also the Gransden Forum; like Touchbase, you have to register to view the site, and it is open to those in the same four villages. Posts are categorised, and you can be selective about the categories in which you are interested.

Info for local residents (including their complaint procedure)
There are various local organisations without their own web presence: contact details for some of those were included in the village directory that was on the Great Gransden Parish council website. The directory was removed as is now well out of out of date, but an update is currently (as of August 2021) being produced by the Bluebell Benefice. The Little Gransden village site has information about the Carpet Bowls club.
There is a diary in the Great Gransden village shop, that can be used by event organisers etc to minimise clashes! Please remember to consult it before scheduling an event, and then put an entry in the diary for your date. There is also a diary on Facebook - but that is only visible to those who have signed up to that platform, despite its privacy record.

The Gransdens in Wikipedia
Wikipedia has entries for both Great Gransden and Little Gransden., which contain links to the entries for the districts and the county. There are also entries for various past residents of the villages, including
Physcomitrella patens, Liopleurodon Pachydeirus and Cryptosaurus, the first two being residents of Gransden wood and the last of Great Gransden Brick Pit. (The Wikipedia article on Liopleurodon does not mention Gransden; for that, see plesiosauria.com/genera/liopleurodon/liopleurodon-pachydeirus/)
