reservoir, which normally supplies water to Caldicot, is to remain closed
after being infected by blue-green algae. The reservoir has not been used
for water supply for some 12 months since the potentially-poisonous algae
was discovered. Officials from Welsh Water are still unable to say when
it will be reused. In the meantime Caldicot is receiving water from other
Caldicot's selection of shops improved during August with
the opening of a 'Be Wise' store on the long-empty 'Kwik Save' site and
of 'Tops n Bottoms', a ladies' fashion shop, in Wesley Buildings.
Caldicot Regeneration Group and Monmouthshire County Council
are working together to raise the profile of the town. Plans are being
discussed for banners in the town centre and other marketing initiatives.
A newsletter giving details of events of run by local organisations and
groups is to be published.
It wasn't just 16-18 year olds who were celebrating exam
successes at Caldicot Comprehensive School. They were joined by grandmother
Judith Reed who has just added an A grade in ceramics to the six GCSE
and A Levels she has passed in seven years of part-time study at the school.
THE NAKED TRUTH
Parents of three Caldicot youths were given the naked truth
by police, who delivered verbal warnings to the youngsters in front of
their parents after they had been caught 'streaking' through the Brookside
old people's complex.
The installation of closed-circuit television cameras in
Caldicot town centre came a step closer with the grant of £440,000 from
the Welsh Assembly to Monmouthshire County Council. The money will be
used to buy 24 cameras and transmission equipment to be used throughout
the county. Although no decisions have yet been published on the location
of the cameras, it is thought likely that Caldicot will get a share.
