Friends of the Earth Cymru have claimed that the ‘Orange’
phone mast on the roof of Caldicot Comprehensive School could be a health
risk. They argue that prolonged exposure to low levels of radiation can
cause headaches, memory loss and high blood pressure. The Headteacher,
Mr John Norwood, rejected the FOE call for the mast to be taken down.
He pointed out that an independent risk assessment had concluded that
there was no risk.
A new counseling service has been set up at Caldicot Resource
Centre. It will offer people with problems such as stress, relationships,
finance and drugs a chance to talk them over in privacy and with confidentiality
assured. (For details phone 01291 424277)
A former teacher at Caldicot Comprehensive School is setting
up a new charity "Everybody’s Child" to help Romanian families
whose children have HIV or Aids. Paul Davies left Caldicot in 1997 to
work in a Romanian hospice and set up the charity as a result of his experiences.
