December 2003

Two Labour members of Caldicot town council have quit the party and have joined the opposition to the ruling Labour Group as “independent” members. Colin Babb (Severn Ward) is reported to have resigned from the party in a long running dispute over his subscription fees while Kevin Bevan (West End Ward) stated that he was no longer prepared to “toe the party line” and was particularly unhappy about the handing of the recent cemetery dispute. A third Labour member, John Thomas (Dewstow Ward) has resigned from the council for “personal reasons”.

Caldicot town councilor James Harris has criticised Caldicot railway station as being “deprived and neglected” with no toilets, no proper waiting rooms and no facilities for the disabled. He has called on Raitrack and the Welsh Assembly Government to make improvements.

The cheapest house advertised in the local press for sale in Caldicot at the end of December 2003 was a three-bedroomed semi-detached property with detached garage at £121,500.
