FALL IN CRIME
FOLLOWS CCTV INSTALLATION
Gwent police reported that criminal damage in Caldicot town centre has
fallen by 47% and burglaries by 80% since CCTV cameras were installed
in Caldicot in July.
TO PAY FOR GRAVESTONES
Following a row over the laying flat of many gravestones in Caldicot cemetery
(see October), Caldicot town council has promised that the stones will
be re-erected at no cost to relatives.
SPECTACULAR UNDER THREAT
A son et lumiere planned for Caldicot Castle next summer may
have to be cancelled due to a shortfall in funding. The issue is due to
be discussed by the Severnside Area Committee of Monmouthshire County
Council. Similar performances held at Tintern Abbey and Chepstow Castle
have been highly successful, attracting thousands of visitors.
A meeting of representatives from local groups was held at Caldicot Choir
Hall to discuss the establishment of a Severnside Forum. The Forum, proposed
as part of Monmouthshire county Council’s community strategy, would
help to guide the council in serving Caldicot and neighbouring villages.
The cheapest house for sale in Caldicot at the end of November 2003 was
